Avenfield case: Court gives Nawaz, family till Monday to record statements
May 18, 2018
ISLAMABAD (92 News) – The testimonies of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, daughter Maryam and son-in-law Capt (retd) Safdar could not be recorded in the Avenfield case on Friday as the defence sought more time to ponder over the questions sent by the accountability court. The prosecution objected to the plea, saying the defence just wants to waste time. However, Accountability Judge Mohammad Bashir approved the plea but observed that the recording of statements will not be delayed further than Monday. Moreover, the court ruled that Panama case JIT head Wajid Zia, whose cross-examination in the Al Azizia reference was to resume on Monday, should now appear in court on Tuesday.
