NAB court indicts Nawaz Sharif, daughter and son-in-law in offshore assets case
Published at: 9 month(s) ago

Islamabad: Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, his daughter Maryam and son-in-law MNA Captain (retd) Safdar were indicted in the offshore assets case on Thursday.

The accountability court hearing corruption cases against the Sharif family indicted the three accused after dismissing pleas of the former premier, Maryam and Safdar to suspend proceedings and halt their indictment in Avenfield properties case.

Furthermore, Nawaz is expected to be indicted in the two other references against him after Maryam and Safdar leave the court.

During the hearing of references filed by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) in light of the Supreme Court's July 28 verdict in the Panama Papers case, former prime minister Nawaz Sharif's counsel, Ayesha Hamid, pleaded the court to suspend proceedings until the Supreme Court decides on her client's plea regarding the re-filing of references.

Similarly, Maryam and MNA Capt (retd) Safdar's counsel, Amjad Pervez, argued before Accountability Judge Mohammad Bashir that his clients were not provided with the complete documents of the case and thus the indictment process should be halted.

However, the judge dismissed both pleas after which Nawaz filed another plea requesting the court to combine the three references.
