Islamabad: The accountability court hearing corruption references against former prime minister and chairperson Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Nawaz Sharif and his family resumed its proceedings on Thursday.

According to details, Judge Mohammad Bashir is conducting the hearing into the Al Azizia Steel Mills and Hill Metals Establishment reference today.

As the hearing went under way, Nawaz's counsel Ayesha Hamid objected to the inclusion of Noreen Shahzad in the witness list, saying she was not included in the list of witnesses by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB).

Hamid pleaded that the documents submitted by Shahzad cannot be made part of the case.

However, the NAB prosecutor opposed the plea, saying Shahzad did not appear as a witness and only provided records, adding that Tayyab Ahmed is the main witness.

Shahzad is a manager and Ahmed an employee of a private bank.

The judge then reserved his plea on Nawaz's counsel's objection and will announce his decision shortly.

At the last hearing on Wednesday (yesterday), Ahmed continued recorded his statement for the third day.

Tayyab also provided the court with foreign bank account details and transactions of the former premier and his son Hussain Nawaz.

Hussain and his younger brother Hasan are also accused in the three references against the Sharif family. Due to their non-appearance in court, their trial has been separated and the two have been declared proclaimed offenders.

The hearing was then adjourned until Thursday (today) when Tayyab will continue recording his statement.

Nawaz and his daughter Maryam have been exempted from appearance by the court. Nawaz's exemption was approved from December 5-12 while Maryam's from Nov 15-Dec 15.
