ISLAMABAD: The accountability court hearing graft references against former prime minister Nawaz Sharif and his family will resume its proceedings today.
A five-member bench of the Supreme Court on July 28 had directed NAB to file references against Nawaz and his children in six weeks in the accountability court and directed the trial court to decide the references within six months.
The former premier and his sons, Hassan and Hussain, have been named in all three NAB references, while Maryam and Safdar have been named only in the Avenfield reference.
Four witnesses are expected to record their statements in the Avenfield reference today.
Moreover, the court is expected to rule on the three suspects’ request to be exempted from appearance from February 19 to March 5 as the family has to travel to London to visit Nawaz’s ailing wife, Kulsoom.
On Wednesday, the  NAB filed the supplementary references in Al-Azizia Steel Mills and Flagship Investment cases against deposed prime minister Nawaz Sharif and his sons, while requesting the Interior Ministry to place the names of Nawaz, his daughter Maryam and son-in-law Captain (r) Safdar on the Exit Control List (ECL).
