Total of 140 questions were present in the questionnaire, and all have been answered by the offender in the case, Mian Nawaz Sharif.During the hearing session today, Nawaz Sharif held an aggressive stance that the Prosecution has been unable to present any sort of proof against him.

“They [Prosecution] have not been able to prove that Hasan and Hussain were under my Guardianship. Therefore, I do not feel the need to present any evidence for myself”, he added.

Nawaz said, “Will the Prosecution tell how is foreign property under my control? Did I provide the finance for those properties?”He further demanded, “It should be told before the court that what is the purpose of any named asset? The Prosecution must provide some witnesses in order to prove these allegations”.

Former Premier said, “Around 80 Lakh Pakistanis are doing businesses overseas. Is it wrong then? Should we file a case against all of them? Should we drag all overseas Pakistani business before the court? If no, then why a father of two has been summoned before the court?”

Nawaz affirmed that Choudhary Sugar Mills, Mehran and some other businesses were initiated back in 1992.“In 1969, 7 Bungalows of our family were constructed in Model Town Lahore. Although, when the situation did not seem ideal for the business here, my father did business abroad”, Nawaz uttered.
