Ex-prime minister Nawaz Sharif on Monday left for Punjab House after a brief appearance before accountability court in the corruption references filed by National Accountability Bureau (NAB) over Panama Leaks case.
Nawaz Sharif appeared before accountability court for the second time during which Justice Mohammad Bashir heard the references pertaining to London flats, Nelson, Nescom, Hill Metal and Azizia Steel Mills.
The NAB prosecutor told the court that Nawaz Sharif’s children and son-in-law are deliberately skipping the hearing as their arrest warrants were sent to the London authorities over which the court issued non-bailable arrest warrants for his sons and a bailable warrant for daughter.
The court has also decided to hear cases against Nawaz Sharif, who was not indicted in today’s hearing due to the absence of his children, in separate trials.
Subsequently, the hearing has been adjourned till October 9.
Talking to media, State Minister Mohsin Shah Nawaz Ranjha said that Maryam and Captain (r) Safdar will attend the next hearing as Nawaz’s daughter is in London for the treatment of her mother.
