Corruption cases against Nawaz
The accountability court hearing the corruption cases against former prime minister Nawaz Sharif resumed hearing the Al Azizia reference on Monday.
During the hearing headed by Justice Mohammad Bashir, Nawaz Sharif and Maryam Nawaz were granted three-day exemption from personal appearance as they are in London to visit ailing Kulsoom Nawaz. During the proceedings, Judge Mohammad Bashir remarked that the Supreme Court’s latest deadline [of July 10] to conclude the cases is ending, saying it is his job to write to the apex court to increase the deadline once more. Meanwhile, Khawaja Harris also expressed objections over judge Bashir, saying that you already had announced verdict against Sharif family in Avenfield reference.—INP
