ISLAMABAD (Muslim Times) – Accountability court has handed over questionnaire regarding Avenfield reference to ex-prime minister Nawaz Sharif, his daughter Maryam Nawaz and son-in-law Captain (r) Safdar.
The proceedings of London flats reference have entered final phase as the accused have been directed to appear in the court on Friday to record their statements under the Section 342 of the Criminal Procedure Code (CrPC).
The other two accused, Hussain and Hassan Nawaz have been declared absconders.
On the other hand, hearing of Al-Azizia reference was adjourned until Monday after Nawaz’s counsel started cross-examination of head of the joint investigation team (JIT) Wajid Zia.
Previously, Wajid Zia told the court that Hill Metal Establishment earned 9.9 million dollar profit during 2010 to 2017 while Nawaz Sharif received 8.9 million dollar from the company during 2010 to 2015.
Bank account details show that Hussain Nawaz gave 88 percent profit to Nawaz Sharif, he added.
SC 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 high court also ordered the NAB to investigate and conduct a trial into the Sharif family’s wider finances, including the London properties.
Sharif was also ousted from the presidency of the ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) party, which elected close ally Shahid Khaqan Abbasi as prime minister after Sharif was disqualified.
