Accountability Court Islamabad has resumed hearing of Avenfield reference against former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and his family members.

According to news reports, Nawaz Sharif, Maryam Nawaz and Captain (r) Safdar are present in the court room.

Judge Muhammad Bashir is hearing the case.

Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) leader Maryam Nawaz is recording her statement for the second consecutive day.

On Thursday, Maryam had recorded her statement in 46 of the 128 questions asked by the accountability court.

The joint investigation team (JIT), which was formed upon apex court’s orders to investigate Sharif family’s assets, and its report are irrelevant in the case of Avenfield properties, said former prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s daughter Maryam Nawaz while recording her statement in the accountability court.

During the hearing, Maryam told the court that report prepared by the JIT is an investigative document, which was unacceptable as an evidence, adding that the Supreme Court ordered references be filed in light of the evidence presented by the JIT, but did not ask the JIT report to be made part of any reference as an evidence.

Following a pattern similar to Nawaz, Maryam started her statement by criticising the members of the JIT.

Nawaz has already recorded his statement in the court.
