Sharif family trouble increases as NAB case enters last stage


ISLAMABAD - Nawaz Sharif, his daughter Maryam Nawaz and son-in-law retired captain Mohammad Safdar verdict from the NAB Court is expected in coming weeks as the case has entered the finals stage.

They will record their statements in the Avenfield reference at the accountability court on Friday.

The three accused will be provided with a list of questions regarding the case, said the court on Wednesday. The remaining two accused, Sharif's sons Hussain and Hassan Nawaz, have been declared absconders.

The court decided to initiate the process under Section 342 of the Criminal Procedure Code (CrPC) in which the accused is given an opportunity to defend himself/herself before issuance of the final verdict after testimonies and cross-examinations of all prosecution witnesses were completed.

Accountability Judge Mohammad Bashir will formulate the questions for Sharif, Maryam and Safdar as an advanced intimation to their statements under Section 342 of the CrPC.
