Two witnesses record statements in corruption cases against Sharifs
Judge Mohammad Bashir took up the case after Nawaz Sharif, his daughter Maryam, and son-in-law Capt (retd) Safdar have reached the court.
It is to mention here that the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) filed three references against Nawaz and his family in light of the Supreme Court's July 28 judgment in the Panama Papers case.
The three references include the London flats, Al-Azizia Steel Mills and offshore companies including Flagship Investment Ltd.
The court had summoned three NAB witnesses, while two witnesses — Ghulam Mustafa and Yasir Shabbir — recorded their statements and the third witness, Afaq Ahmad's statement will be recorded on next hearing.
The hearing was adjourned until January 30.
On Monday, the NAB submitted a supplementary reference against former prime minister Nawaz Sharif and four others in the Avenfield properties case and claimed that it included new evidence against Sharif family. Around seven more witnesses, including two from the United Kingdom, have been added in the reference.
Forensic expert Robert Radley and a close relative of Panamagate Joint Investigative Team head Wajid Zia will be witnesses in the case. The NAB will produce two officials from the Ministry of Information, an employee of a private media channel and two NAB officials as witnesses.
