Contrary to the former premier Nawaz Sharif’s argument that he was disqualified for not receiving a salary from his son’s Dubai-based company, his lawyer admitted before an accountability court on Friday that the PML-N supreme leader got the salary from Capital FZE.
Judge Muhammad Bashir presided over the trial proceedings as Khawaja Haris, Mr. Sharif’s lead counsel, continued his final arguments in the Avenfield properties case on the fourth day.
The former premier and his daughter Maryam Nawaz didn’t appear as they are in London owing to the illness of Begum Kulsoom Nawaz.
Advocate Haris contended that Mr. Sharif is neither a beneficial owner of the London flats nor has anything to do with them. The prosecution had to prove their ownership, he added.
