Court allows ‘unwell’ Sharif to leave hearing

Islamabad: Pakistan’s accountability court on Monday allowed former prime minister Nawaz Sharif to leave the court after being told he was ‘unwell’.

According to the Dawn, the court was hearing the Flagship Investment reference case against the Sharif family, for which along with Nawaz, his daughter Maryam Nawaz had also appeared before the court.

The court’s proceedings continued after Nawaz’s exit.

The hearing was adjourned until March 7.

Last month, Supreme Court had disqualified Sharif from the post of ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) party chief, saying all the decisions made by him as head of the party stand null and void.
