Daily Messenger - - Front Page -

IS­LAM­ABAD: Ex-prime min­is­ter Nawaz Sharif on Wed­nes­day has recorded his state­ment in re­ply to four more ques­tions in the Flag­ship ref­er­ence.

The Ac­count­abil­ity court re­sumed the hear­ing to­day, Nawaz Sharif ap­peared be­fore the court to record the replies of the ques­tion­naire.

The Ac­count­abil­ity Court had handed over the ques­tion­naire to Nawaz Sharif dur­ing the pre­vi­ous hear­ing.

On the other hand, lead de­fence coun­sel Khawaja Haris con­tin­ued the cross-ex­am­i­na­tion.

Ear­lier Nawaz Sharif said that Na­tional Ac­count­abil­ity Bureau (NAB) prose­cu­tor has failed to pro­vide ev­i­dence to prove his in­dict­ment in the case.

He also re­fused to present any wit­ness in his de­fence.

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-in­law Cap­tain Saf­dar were con­victed and sen­tenced to pri­son for ten years, seven years and one year re­spec­tively in Aven­field ver­dict.
