Sharif, daughter, son-in-law indicted for graft


Islamabad, Oct 20: A court on Thursday indicted ousted Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, his daughter Maryam Nawaz and his son-in-law Captain Mohammad Safdar in a corruption reference pertaining to the London properties owned by the family.

The four references against the Sharif family related to their Avenfield properties in London, the Azizia Steel Mills as well as another 16 offshore companies.

They were filed by the National Accountability Court in the light of Supreme Court orders in so-called Panama Papers case.

Thursday’s move came after the court dismissed pleas of the former Premier, his daughter and son-in-law to suspend proceedings and halt their indictment.
