Posted In: News Date:Dec 11th, 2017

The accountability court hearing corruption references against ousted prime minister Nawaz Sharif and his children on Monday completed recording of statements of witnesses brought forward by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) in the Avenfield Flats case.

The former premier’s son-in-law, Capt (r) Muhammad Safdar, appeared before the court as the hearing into the Avenfield Flats reference ─ one of the three filed against members of the Sharif family, resumed.

Nawaz and his daughter Maryam were not present in the court as the two had left for London on Dec 5 after they were exempted from appearing before the court.

During the hearing, Nawaz’s lawyer cross-examined Malik Tayyab, a witness presented by the prosecution who in a previous hearing had provided details of cheques issued to Maryam and others from the former premier’s bank account.
