ISLAMABAD, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 18th May, 2018 ) :The accountability court Friday postponed testimony of accused in Avenfield property reference till May 21, on the request of defense counsel.
As the hearing began, Nawaz Sharif's counsel Khawaja Haris pleaded the court to grant more time for recording statements of his clients. He stated that his clients need more time to go over the questions sent by court owing to some discrepancies.
However, the NAB prosecutor opposed the request and adopted the stance that the defense just wanted to waste the court time. Accountability Judge Mohammad Bashir approved the request and observed that the recording of statements would 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. Former prime minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif appeared in court today along with Maryam Nawaz and Capt. (Reted) Safdar.
