The accountability court adjourned the hearing of graft cases against the Sharif family soon after ousted prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s daughter and son-in-law — Maryam Nawaz and Captain (retd) Safdar — arrived in court, as lawyers created a racket while trying to enter the courtroom.Just as accountability court Judge Muhammad Bashir entered the courtroom, a number of lawyers forced their way into the court and surrounded the judge’s bench, claiming that they were manhandled by security forces outside the court and prevented from entering the courtroom.The lawyers threatened to hold up the hearing until action was taken against the police officials that had allegedly manhandled them outside the court.
As a result of the racket, Judge Bashir decided to end court proceedings for the day and asked both defendants to leave the courtroom and return for the hearing on October 19.
As she left the court premises, Maryam Nawaz spoke to the media and asked the Interior Ministry to come up with a strategy to keep such events from occurring in the future.
