Flagship reference: Nawaz seeks exemption from appearing court

Former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Friday couldn t appear before the court due to security issues and sought a one-day exemption from hearing of the case pertaining to Flagship Investments reference. The Accountability Court Judge, Arshad Malik resumed the hearing of the case during which Khawaja Harris submitted his client Nawaz Sharif’s exemption plea. Earlier, Khawaja Harris completed his 11th cross-examination of joint investigation team (JIT) head and primary witness Wajid Zia. Zia had told the court that Nawaz Sharif provided income tax records and wealth statement from 1985-1999 and 2009-2016. Hassan Nawaz provided explanation for the SPV model pertaining to his companies, he added. It is worth mentioning here that the cases against Nawaz family stemmed from the Panama Papers leak that disclosed expensive and undeclared property allegedly owned by them in London. Former PM Nawaz Sharif, his daughter Maryam Nawaz and son-in-law Captain Safdar were convicted and sentenced to prison for ten years, seven years and one year respectively in Avenfield verdict. However, the convictions were suspended by Islamabad High Court and they were released from Adiala jail till final decision.
