The hearing of National Accountability Bureau (NAB) references against ex-prime minister Nawaz Sharif has been adjourned due to his wife Begum Kulsoom Nawaz’s death.
Defence lawyer Khawaja Harris told that Nawaz Sharif, his daughter Maryam Nawaz and son-in-law Captain (r) Safdar have reached Lahore on parole and that he has not received any instructions to carry on hearing in his client’s absence.
The court asked about the application of the convicts over which, the administration said that it has not been received so far.
The judge also paid tribute to Kulsoom Nawaz by calling her a national figure. He said that it will be inappropriate to continue the proceedings today.
