Panama Papers: Pak court rejects Sharif’s objections to supplementary case  

Islamabad |

An accountability court in Pakistan on Tuesday rejected ousted premier Nawaz Sharif’s objections to the supplementary case filed against him and his family by the country’s anti-graft body over properties in London.
The court holding trial in graft cases against Sharif and his family decided that the supplementary case would be made part of the record in the Avenfield flats case.

The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on January 22 filed a supplementary case with the accountability court’s registrar in Islamabad which is already trying Sharif and his family — two sons Hussain and Hassan, daughter Maryam, and son-in-law Safdar — for alleged corruption in three cases.

The cases are related to the Panama Papers scandal that had forced the 68-year-old three-time prime minister to resign.

Accompanied by daughter Maryam and son-in-law Mohammad Safdar, Sharif for the 15th time appeared in the court located in Islamabad.
