AC approves one-day exemption plea of Nawaz, Maryam

The Accountability Court -I accepted one day exemption plea of Nawaz Sharif and Maryam Nawaz as the flight could not take off from Lahore due to inclement weather on Monday.

According to the details, Judge Muhammad basher is hearing the case against sharif family, which was filed by the JIT after Supreme Court's decision.

The Avenfield properties reference is among three cases filed against Nawaz and his family by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) past year on the Supreme Court's directives, which also disqualified Nawaz Sharif as premier and party head.

However, the former prime minister's son-in-law, retired Captain Muhammad Safdar, was among the attendees in the court.

It is pertinent to mention here that Wajid Zia had earlier presented seven MLAs documents in the accountability court after the court had directed the JIT head to approach the apex court for obtaining the JIT report's Volume X.

In the hearing headed by Justice Mohammad Bashir, Maryam Nawaz's lawyer Amjad Pervaiz will continue cross-examination of head of Panama Joint Investigation Team (JIT) Wajid Zia.

The witness also stated that he can not say in whose name bearer shares were issued after their cancellation.

During the last hearing, Wajid Zia had admitted that there was no evidence pointing to deposed premier Nawaz Sharif's daughter Maryam's involvement in the incorporation of Nelson and Nescol offshore companies. Later, the JIT head informed the court that the BVI officials had sought more information through e-mail to answer MLA.
