Former PM Nawaz and Maryam outside the accountability court in Islamabad

As Judge Muhammad Bashir resumed the hearing of the Avenfield properties case against the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Quaid and his daughter, their lawyer informed the court that they couldn't reach Islamabad from Lahore owing to bad weather.

As the hearing went under way, the court approved, as it did at the last hearing for the same reasons, Nawaz and Maryam's plea to be exempted from appearance today.

The case- based on a reference filed by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) in light of the Supreme Court's July 28's verdict in Panama Papers case, pertains to the Sharif family's London apartments.

The counsel, who represented Maryam in the case, resumed cross-examination of prosecution witness Wajid Zia, the head of the Panama Joint Investigation Team (JIT) that probed the Sharif family's offshore assets.

Hussain and Hassan Nawaz are UK-based and have been absconding since the proceedings began past year, however, the former premier has been showing up regularly before the court of judge Muhammad Bashir.

He also conceded it was sweet to triumph in a country where some critics claimed his purist principles couldn't flourish. We've got a final against Chelsea at the start of May which extends the season and gives us another showpiece game.

After Harris concluded his cross-examination, Maryam's counsel began his cross-examination.

The trial against the Sharif family had commenced on September 14, 2017.

Nawaz Sharif and his sons Hussain and Hasan are accused in all three references whereas his daughter Maryam and son-in-law MNA Capt (retd) Safdar are named in the Avenfield reference only.

The two brothers, based overseas, have been absconding since the proceedings began past year and were declared proclaimed offenders by the court.
