Nawaz, Maryam leave for London

IHC dismisses Nawaz Sharif's plea to club corruption references

Nawaz's petition pleads the IHC to direct the accountability court "to frame one charge and conduct a single trial" against the Sharif family in the three corruption references.

However, Judge Mohammad Bashir dismissed Nawaz's daughter Maryam's request to change her appearance exemption dates, stating that the court's earlier ruling on the matter will prevail.

They have been granted a week-long exemption from appearing in Accountability Court from Dec 5 to Dec 11 during yesterday's hearing.

Former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, his daughter Maryam Nawaz and son-in-law Mohammad Safdar reached the accountability court early Monday morning for the hearing of the case.

The accountability court is hearing three references filed by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) against Nawaz and his family regarding London flats, Azizia Steel Mills and other companies in the backdrop of the Supreme Court's verdict in the Panama Papers case.

The father-daughter duo will be represented in the court by their pleaders, Zaafir Khan and Barrister Jahangir Jadoon while MNA Safdar has requested to be represented by Advocate Faisal Irfan.

Sharif and his sons Hassan and Hussain have been named in all the three references, whereas Maryam and Safdar have been named only in the Avenfield properties reference.

The Islamabad High Court on Monday also rejected his plea seeking to club together multiple graft cases against him. However, he dismissed the same plea of Maryam Nawaz, who sought change in her exemption period already granted to her.

At the outset of court proceedings today, Safdar through his counsel submitted the plea seeking an exemption from personal appearance for 15 days. Ahmed, an employee of a private bank, also presented details of Nawaz's bank accounts and transactions.

The lawyer told the bench that the accountability court had decided against clubbing the three references?

The lawyer pointed out that the references list the same three individuals as accused and added that six out of 13 witnesses in both references were also the same.
