Accountability court resumes hearing of graft cases against Nawaz Sharif

Islamabad (Monitoring Desk): Accountability court has resumed hearing of graft cases against former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif filed by National Accountability Bureau on the directions of Supreme court of Pakistan.

Judge Mohammad Bashir is conducting the hearing into the Al Azizia Steel Mills and Hill Metals Establishment reference today.

As the hearing went under way, Nawaz’s counsel Ayesha Hamid objected to the inclusion of Noreen Shahzad in the witness list, saying she was not included in the list of witnesses by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB).

Hamid pleaded that the documents submitted by Shahzad cannot be made part of the case.

Shahzad is a manager of a private bank.

However, the NAB prosecutor opposed the plea, saying Shahzad did not appear as a witness and only provided records, adding that Tayyab Ahmed is the main witness.

The judge then reserved his plea on Nawaz’s counsel’s objection and will announce his decision shortly.
