An accountability court conducting hearing in the Avenfield apartments reference against the former Prime Minister (PM) of Pakistan and former President of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) said it would announce the much awaited judgement at 2:30 PM on Friday.
The court reserved its judgement in the case after almost 10 months of proceedings and over 80 appearances of Nawaz Sharif, Maryam Nawaz, and Capt (retd) Safdar Awan.
Judge Muhammad Bashir reserved the judgment after defence counsel Amjad Pervaiz concluded his arguments, saying he would pronounce the judgment on July 6 and, subsequently, issued notice to the accused requiring their attendance before the court on Friday.
Meanwhile, the court during Tuesday’s proceedings granted exemption from personal appearance to Sharif till Wednesday.

In his final arguments, Amjad Pervaiz said “the entire investigation of the joint investigation team was conducted with a preconceived mind to implicate the whole Sharif family in the cases”.
