Nawaz Sharif, Maryam, Captain Safdar appear in accountability court


Ousted prime minister Nawaz Sharif, his daughter Maryam Nawaz and son-in-law Captain (retd) Muhammad Safdar arrived at an accountability court in the federal capital on Wednesday.

The accountability court resumed hearing corruption references filed against them by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB).

A number of the senior leadership of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) and party workers were also present at the court amid tight security.

The court has summoned four witnesses of the prosecution including Malik Tayyab, Shehbaz, Mazhar Bangash and Rashid in today’s hearing. It is also expected to decide on declaring Hassan Nawaz and Hussain Nawaz proclaimed offenders.

Last week, the accountability court had accepted Nawaz Sharif’s application for exemption from hearings until November 27. However, the former prime minister along with his family members appeared before the court today.
