Nawaz to return home today to appear before NAB court

The court has summoned former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, his daughter Maryam Nawaz and son-in-law Captain Safdar for indictment, however, Sharif skipped the hearing as he is in London to visit his ailing wife, Begum Kulsoom Nawaz.

The lawyers alleged that they were manhandled by the security forces outside the court and prevented them from entering the courtroom.

Maryam, while interacting with reporters, expressed concern over the unnecessary hurdles created for lawyers and asked the interior ministry to probe the incident.

Nawaz Sharif, Hassan Nawaz and Hussain Nawaz are nominated in references regarding Park Lane apartments, Al Azizia Steel Mills and offshore companies, while Maryam Nawaz and her husband Capt (retd) Safdar are nominated in reference regarding Park Lane apartments.

As the accountability court began hearing the corruption cases against the Sharif family, a group of lawyers entered the courtroom protesting police high-handedness against them. According to a court official, Safdar petitioned the Islamabad High Court (IHC) to pre-empt the indictment but the court rejected his plea.
