Hearing of NAB’s references against Sharif family adjourned until Jan 16

IHC accepts Sharif family’s appeals against Avenfield case verdict

ISLAMABAD: The accountability court on Tuesday adjourned hearing of National Accountability Bureau’s (NAB) references against the Sharif family until January 16.
Earlier, the ousted prime minister Nawaz Sharif, his daughter Maryam Nawaz and son-in-law Captain (r) Safdar reappeared before the court.
During the hearing headed by Justice Mohammad Bashir, Securities and Exchange Commission of Pakistan (SECP) officer Sidra Mansoor recorded her statement.
She said that documents revealed Nawaz’s son Hussain Nawaz was owner of 4,98,400 shares and that price of one Mehran Ramzan Textile Mills share was Rs10.
These shares were gifted and donated, she added.
Meanwhile, PML-N lawyer Khawaja Harris argued on her statement.
Nawaz Sharif is nominated suspect in references regarding Avenfield properties, Azizia Steel Mills and Flagship Investment, while Maryam Nawaz and her husband Captain (retd) Safdar are nominated in reference regarding Avenfield properties alone.
The Supreme Court disqualified Sharif from office in July over unreported sources of annual income of about $10,000, a salary the former premier denies ever receiving.
The apex court also ordered the NAB to investigate and conduct a trial into the Sharif family’s wider finances, including the London properties.
