ISLAMABAD - Former PM Nawaz Sharif appeared before NAB Court today. NAB prosecutor Sardar Muzaffar Abbas informed the court that the security staff at Sharifs' Jati Umra residence in Lahore refused to accept the summons for Hussain and Hasan Nawaz, stating that they reside outside the country.
During today's hearing, the court also set October 2 as the date to indict Nawaz in the three references. He added that the summons of Hasan was then delivered to him London through the second secretary at Pakistan's High Commission but he still did not appear in court today.
As Nawaz appeared in court today, the judge allowed the former prime minister to exit the court after marking his attendance so the proceedings could begin properly.
Nawaz's counsel, Khawaja Harris, represented Nawaz and was provided copies of the three references against his client.
