ISLAMABAD - The NAB court hearing the references against the Sharif family asked Sharif's counsel, Khawaja Harris, whether he was requesting exemption from today's hearing only, the lawyer responded that his client had gone to London to look after his ailing wife and he should, therefore, be granted permanent exemption.

After initially reserving the decision, the court rejected the application for Sharif's permanent exemption, allowing him to be absent from today's hearing only.

Meanwhile, the NAB prosecution asked the court to issue arrest warrants for Nawaz Sharif , who they said had left for London, despite being a primary accused, without informing NAB authorities. 

Accountability Judge Mohammad Bashir reserved his decision on this matter.
