LONDON - Nawaz Sharif and his daughter Maryam have, for the time being, delayed their return to Pakistan owing to the prevailing illness of Kulsoom Nawaz.
Sources said the former premier, who reached London along with his daughter on Thursday to tend to his ailing wife, was advised by doctors to delay his return to the country — which was initially planned for today.
According to sources, the counsels for Nawaz and Maryam will submit an exemption from appearance request in the accountability court of Islamabad hearing corruption cases against them.
The former premier and his family are facing three corruption references filed by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) following his disqualification in July last year.
Sources said the counsels for the accused will submit Kulsoom’s medical report and the doctor’s letter with the exemption request.
