Nawaz Sharif and his daughter have been granted exemption from personal appearance in the court

Before the hearing began, both Nawaz Sharif and Maryam Nawaz filed separate applications for exemption from future court hearings.

Nawaz Sharif stated that he has to look after his ailing wife Kulsoom Nawaz in London; therefore, he should be granted the leniency for one week.

Maryam also submitted an exemption request saying that she will appear before the court whenever she is summoned.

During the hearing, Justice Mohammad Bashir also declared Nawaz Sharif's sons Hassan and Hussain absconders over their continuous absence in the case.

As the hearing begun, prosecution witnesses Sidra Mansoor of Securities and Exchange Commission of Pakistan recorded her statements in connection with Avenfield Properties Reference (London Properties).

During the hearing, Mansoor testified that she had provided NAB with the 2000-2005 audit report of Hudaibiya Paper Mills.

The counsels of Nawaz and his children, Khawaja Harris and Amjad Pervez, objected that the witness provided photocopies of documents which do not bear official seals and signatures of companies.

Ahmad has been called to appear in court again in Nov 22 for cross-questioning in the next hearing of the case.




In another development in the NAB references against Sharif family, former minister Nawaz Sharif and his daughter Maryam Nawaz have been granted exemption from appearance by the accountability court in Islamabad today (Wednesday). "We are waging a struggle against courts' double standards, and would take this struggle to a logical end", said he.

Other Pakistan Muslim League - Nawaz (PML-N) leaders including Tariq Fatemi, Saad Rafique, Talal Chaudhry and Marriyum Aurangzeb were also present during the hearing.

Deposed prime minister Nawaz Sharif has been indicted in all three corruption references regarding Avenfield properties, Azizia Steel Mills and Flagship Investment, while Maryam Nawaz and her husband Captain (r) Safdar were indicted in reference regarding Avenfield properties alone.

According to Geo News, the former prime minister criticized the courts when a journalist asked him to comment on relief Imran Khan got in cases against him.

The anti-graft body was given six weeks, from the date of the apex court's order, to file the reference in an accountability court while the accountability court was granted six months to wrap up the proceedings.

Nawaz, along with Maryam and Safdar had earlier reached Islamabad from Lahore.

Safdar was also directed to take the court's permission before leaving the country from now on.
