ISLAMABAD: Former prime minister, Nawaz Sharif, will appear before the accountability court today (Tuesday) in a Flagship Investment Reference hearing, ARY News reported.

It is expected that prosecution and lawyer of Mr. Sharif may furnish conclusive arguments in the Al-Azizia reference as well.

Khawaja Haris, counsel of the ex-PM, continue cross examining NAB investigation officer Muhammad Kamran.

The court put over 120 questions to Mr Sharif in the Avenfield properties reference and 151 in the Al-Azizia reference. The former prime minister has so far responded to 148 of the 151 questions.

Nawaz Sharif, during last hearing of the Al-Azizia Steel Mills case on Nov 22, told the accountability court that the prosecution had failed to prove charges against him.

The ex-PM said he had decided against defending charges framed against him in the case by NAB. “I am not putting forward anything in my defence in the Al-Azizia Steel Mills reference,” he told the court.
