Pak court adjourns hearing in corruption case against Nawaz Sharif

An anti-graft court in Pakistan today adjourned the hearing in a corruption case against convicted former prime minister Nawaz Sharif after the defence lawyer urged the judge to recuse himself from the case.

Islamabad-based accountability court's judge Muhammad Bashir, who gave 10 years of rigorous imprisonment to 68-year-old Sharif in the Avenfield apartment case last week, was hearing the Al Azizia steel mills corruption case against him.

Defence lawyer said, the judge should separate himself from the case as the evidence of the Al Azizia and Avenfield cases was similar. 

The judge decided to refer the matter to the Islamabad High Court which has the authority to transfer cases to another court and adjourned the hearing until July 12.

Three cases were filed against Sharif and his family in September last year following his disqualification by the Supreme Court on July 28, 2017 in the Panama Papers case. 

His two sons Hassan and Hussain are also co-accused in all the three cases but never appeared in the court and were declared as absconders.
