ISLAMABAD: The accountability court hearing corruption references against former prime minister Nawaz Sharif and his family resumed its proceedings on Thursday.Â
Judge Mohammad Bashir is conducting the hearing into the Al Azizia Steel Mills and Hill Metals Establishment reference today.Â
As the hearing went under way, Nawaz’s counsel Ayesha Hamid objected to the inclusion of Noreen Shahzad in the witness list, saying she was not includedÂ in theÂ list of witnessesÂ by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB).Â
Hamid pleaded that the documents submitted by Shahzad cannot be made part of theÂ case.Â
Shahzad is a manager of a private bank.
However, the NAB prosecutor opposed the plea, saying Shahzad did not appear as a witness and only provided records, adding that Tayyab Ahmed is the main witness.Â
The judge then reserved his plea on Nawaz’s counsel’s objection and will announce his decision shortly.Â
