Nawaz arrives at accountability court for hearing in NAB references.
  Tuesday 14 November, 2017
Nawaz arrives at accountability court for hearing in NAB references.

Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif arrived at the accountability court for beginning of the hearing pertaining to references filed against him and his family members by the National Accountability Bureau early Wednesday morning, reported the Express News.

The court resumes hearing today [November 15] wherein it is expected to record statements from witnesses including SECP officer and FBR’s Jahangir Ahmad. The trial will be presided by Justice Muhammad Bashir.

The former premier was accompanied by his daughter Maryam Nawaz while Capt [Retd] Safdar Awan was also present at the court. Other Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz (PML-N) leaders including Tariq Fatemi, Saad Rafique, Talal Chaudhry and Marriyum Aurangzeb also reached the accountability court to support their leader.

The court is also expected to declare the sons of Nawaz Sharif – Hassan Nawaz and Hussain Nawaz – proclaimed offenders.

On November 8, the accountability court held that there will be three references and three trials together instead of one joint trial. While turning down Sharif’s request to conduct a single trial, the court had held that Sharif would stand trial separately in three NAB references.
Subsequently, the judge had formally indicted the ousted premier, his daughter and son in-law. They had pleaded ‘not guilty’ to all the charges.
