Sharif's corruption trial adjourned till today
Islamabad: A Pakistani anti-graft court on Tuesday adjourned till Wednesday the hearing of corruption cases against ousted prime minister Nawaz Sharif who appeared before it to face trial in the Panama Papers scandal.
Sharif, 67, appeared before the Accountability Court Islamabad along with his daughter Maryam and son-in-law Captain (retired) Mohmmad Safdar.
Sharif and some of his family members are facing charges relating to their ownership of properties in London. He resigned as prime minister in July after the country's Supreme Court disqualified him over undeclared income.
Three cases were registered by the National Accountability Bureau against Sharif, his children and son-in-law in the court on September 8. The Accountability Court on Tuesday considered the verdict of the Islamabad High Court (IHC), which last week ordered the trial judge to hear again a plea by Sharif.
