ISLAMABAD: The accountability court hearing the Avenfield properties reference against former prime minister Nawaz Sharif and his family rejected on Thursday a request to make the Panama Papers Joint Investigation Team (JIT) report part of the case record. 

The request was made by Federal Investigation Agency Additional Director Wajid Zia, who headed the JIT, after he appeared in court today to record his statement.  

As Judge Mohammad Bashir began proceedings of the Avenfield case earlier today, Nawaz and Maryam asked to be exempted from appearance owing to the former premier’s ill health. Accepting their request, the court, however, directed Nawaz’s son-in-law MNA Capt (retd) Safdar to remain present in court.
