ISAMAABAD: The accountability court has on Friday resumed hearing of Avenfield reference filed by National Accountability Bureau (NAB) against the Sharif family as former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, his daughter Maryam Nawaz and son-in-law Capt. Retd Safdar appeared in the court.
On Thursday, NAB’s witness Wajid Zia, who also headed the Joint Investigation Team (JIT) probing corruption allegations against the Sharif family, presented former Qatari Prince Hamad bin Jassim bin Jaber alThani’s letter defending the Sharif family as evidence in court.
Interestingly, the defense counsel did not raise any objections to the admissibility of the Qatari letter as evidence.
Meanwhile, Zia continued to record his statement and included parts of the report as evidence he gathered himself and through the JIT’s official research.
However, his complete statement could not be recorded, and will resume recording his remaining statement in the next hearing.
The court then adjourned hearing of the reference until March 20.
The court after marking the attendance of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif and his daughter Maryam Nawaz allowed them to leave; however, they stayed in the court.
As the court adjourned the hearing; Nawaz Sharif, Maryam Nawaz and Capt. Retd Safdar left the court.
