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.

He told the court that NAB was not serious to summon Nawaz Sharif as his client has the same stance over his properties from day one of the case.Khawaja Haris told the court that the letter from Qatari prince Hamd Bin Jassim was not a tale as it was a reality. The JIT should write the prince to appear before JIT personally to confirm the letter, however, the JIT letter was against the moral values as it should have been sent a questionnaire to the prince.

Later, the hearing adjourned till Friday morning.

Earlier, Nawaz Sharif said that the 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-in-law Captain Safdar were convicted and sentenced to prison for ten years, seven years and one year respectively in Avenfield verdict.

However, the convictions were suspended by Islamabad High Court and they were released from Adiala jail till final decision.
