Accountability Judge Muhammad Basheer conducted the proceedings of the reference in which Nawaz, his daughter Maryam and son-in-law Capt (retd) Safdar have been indicted.The former premier reached the accountability court earlier with his family. As Zia resumed recording his statement for the fifth time, he informed the court that Nawaz’s elder son Hussain owned the Avenfield flats from 1993 to 1996.
When Maryam’s counsel Amjad Pervez objected to the claim, Zia said Hussain had informed the JIT of the same so the fact cannot be disputed. Zia also asserted that the signed documents submitted to the JIT by Nawaz’s children were bogus.During the hearing, NAB prosecutors also submitted a request in court to be allowed to submit the Qatari letter and two other documents as evidence. The documents include a letter from the attorney general of British Virgin Islands to Zia.
The request was accepted by the court after a brief recess. Later, as Zia concluded his statement, the hearing was adjourned until today (Wednesday), when Nawaz’s counsel Khawaja Haris will begin his cross-examination of the witness.
