Nawaz Sharif indictment deferred in NAB case

ISLAMABAD: The accountability court hearing three corruption references against the Sharif family issued on Monday non-bailable arrest warrants for Nawaz Sharif 's sons and son-in-law. 

Meanwhile, the court re-issued bailable arrest warrants for Nawaz's daughter, Maryam. 

Khawaja Harris, Nawaz's counsel, informed the court during the hearing that the Sharif children are busy tending to their mother in London and will appear in court once she is better. 

After Nawaz's appearance before the court, Mohsin Ranjha, a member of his legal team, briefed the media. He said the former premier's indictment has been deferred to October 9, the next date of hearing. 

He added that the court has been assured that Maryam and her husband MNA Capt (retd) Safdar will appear in court.

He further said that Nawaz's request of exemption from personal appearance is also yet to be deliberated upon.
