Nawaz Sharif's son-in-law's petition to delay indictment rejected

Nawaz Sharif's son-in-law's petition to delay indictment rejected

After the hearing had been delayed, the PML-N lawyers and supporters dispersed.

Federal Police personnel outside courtroom today (Friday). The apex court had also ordered the opening of several corruption cases against Sharif and members of his family.

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

"He (Sharif) has nominated a representative to appear before the court to face the indictment and deny the charges", he said.

The anti-graft watchdog officials claimed to be manhandled by the lawyers inside the courtroom.

Maryam Nawaz arrived at accountability court amid tight security. She was accompanied by ministers, and senior PML-N leaders.

It merits highlighting here that the court had already separated the ongoing trials of ex-PM Sharif's sons - Hasan and Hussain Nawaz - after declaring them absconder for their perpetual absence during the court proceedings.

After hearing arguments from the prosecution, the court accepted the bail of both Maryam and her husband.

A court in Pakistan today rejected a petition by ousted prime minister Nawaz Sharif's son-in-law Muhammad Safdar to delay his indictment in the Panama Papers corruption case. According to a court official, Safdar petitioned the Islamabad High Court (IHC) to pre-empt the indictment but the court rejected his plea.

The decision came shortly after deposed Sharif's daughter Maryam Nawaz and son-in-law Captain (retd) Safdar appeared in court for hearing of the graft cases.

He was taken into custody by NAB shorty after he landed at Benazir Bhutto International Airport along with his wife Maryam in the early hours of Monday morning.

The court had set October 13 as the date of his indictment.

Sharif again failed to appear before the judge as he was in London with his ailing wife Kulsoom, who is suffering from throat cancer and has undergone three surgeries so far.
