ISLAMABAD: An Accountability Court on Thursday summoned former prime minister Nawaz Sharif in Al-Azizia Steel Mills and Flagship Investment references on Monday.
Accountability Court-II Judge Arshad Malik resumed hearing of two references against Sharif family members filed by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB).
As the hearing began, the NAB prosecutor informed the judge that the IHC had transferred the two references against the former prime minister and his sons to court-II.
Hassan and Hussain Nawaz have been declared absconders by the court due to continuous non-appearance in proceeding in all reference, while Nawaz Sharif had been jailed for 10 years in Avenfield reference.
The deputy prosecutor said that Nawaz, who was convicted and facing jail term at Adiala, couldn’t be produced before the court on Thursday due to security concerns. Earlier, court-I had summoned the joint investigation team head Wajid Zia in these references, he further maintained.
The court subsequently directed to produce Nawaz Sharif on next date of hearing, August 13, and also summoned Wajid Zia on same date.
