Accountability court indicted Nawaz Sharif, Maryam and Safdar

ISLAMABAD: An accountability court on Thursday indicted Pakistan Muslim League (PMLN) leader Nawaz Sharif, Maryam Nawaz and Captain (retd) Safdar in graft cases, dismissing former prime minister’s plea to suspend the proceedings against them. 

During the hearing, former prime minister Nawaz Sharif filed an application in the accountability court seeking halt to the proceedings in the graft references until the Supreme Court’s verdict in his earlier plea challenging the filing of multiple corruption references against him by the National Accountability Bureau.

Nawaz’s second lawyer Ayesha Hamid pleaded the court to halt the indictment process as a plea had already been filed in the Supreme Court to order NAB to file one consolidated reference instead of three separate cases.

Maryam Nawaz and her spouse Capt (retd) Safdar’s counsel, Amjad Pervez, also argued before Accountability Judge Mohammad Bashir that his clients were not provided with the complete documents of the case and thus the indictment process should be halted.
