Sharif family files three applications before NAB court


ISLAMABAD, Nov 15 (TNS): Former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and family members on Wednesday filed three different applications before the Accountability Court.

The applications pertain to seeking exemption from personal appearance before the court and designation of a representative to appear before the court on their behalf.

The application for appearance of a designated representative before the court has been filed by Maryam Nawaz Sharif, seeking permission for Jehangir Jadoon to represent her.

The other applications relate to exemption before the court by Nawaz Sharif and Muhammad Safdar for the next hearing, as they stated that spouse of Nawaz Sharif was sick in London and they wanted to enquire after her health.

The court asked all the three accused to go after appearance for the time being before the court, and the decision on the applications was awaited by the time of filing this report.
