NAB team likely to visit London to collect evidence against Sharif family

The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) registered three cases of corruption and money laundering against Sharif, his family members and Finance Minister Ishaq Dar in the Islamabad Accountability Court following the verdict.

Following the clash, Maryam Nawaz was also permitted to leave the judicial complex while the indictment proceeding has been adjourned till October 19.

"I don't know who created the problems for the lawyers". "I will request the Interior Ministry to enquire into the incident", she said.

The references were filed in the backdrop of Supreme Court's July 28 decision in the Panama Papers case in which Nawaz Sharif was also disqualified for concealing his employment with Capital FZE, a firm owned by his younger son Hassan.

Sharif may return on the next hearing but it depends on the condition of his wife, Rashid said.

Senior leaders of the PML-N, including cabinet members, were at the scene to receive the former premier's daughter.

On Thursday, Maryam left Lahore for Islamabad on a special plane to appear before the trial court, along with her husband, who has recently come under fire from several quarters, including his own party, for demanding that the government ban the Ahmedi minority community from government and military service.

Sharif's wife Kulsoom, who is suffering from throat cancer, has undergone three surgeries in the United Kingdom so far.

According to the affixed warrants of Hassan Nawaz and Hussain Nawaz outside court, they will be declared fugitives if they don't appear before accountability court within the duration of one month.

Sharif had failed to appear on Monday before the court as he was in London with Kulsoom.

The petition says multiple references in a case allegedly involving acquisition of assets beyond means is unprecedented and, as such, is manifestly discriminatory and in violation of the petitioner's fundamental rights as guaranteed under Article 25 of the Constitution.
