ISLAMABAD: National Accountability Bureau (NAB) witness Abdul Wahid recorded his statement before the accountability court here on Wednesday in a supplementary reference filed against the Sharif family members with regard to their London-based Avenfield properties.
The prosecution witness, who is a director general at Directorate of Electronic Media and Publications (DEMP), provided CDs containing the interviews of former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s son Hussain Nawaz.
He informed Accountability Judge Mohammad Bashir that he had previously provided the anti-graft body with the CDs containing Sharif’s address to nation and speech at parliament.
At outset of the proceedings, Sharif’s lead counsel Khawaja Harris argued that the three CDs provided by the prosecution were damaged as an error of insupportable format prompted.
Later, the CDs were played at the courtroom. “The player is supporting the videos’ format and CDs are absolutely fine,” quipped Deputy Prosecution General NAB Sardar Muzaffar Abbas.
Sharif’s counsel Khawaja Harris cross-examined the NAB witness.
Meanwhile, Maryam Nawaz challenged the Accountability Court’s 2nd February decision in the Islamabad High Court, allowing two UK based witnesses to record their statements on video link. According to the details, Maryam has filed writ petition through her lawyer Amjad Parvez. INP/NNI
