Pak panel set to declare Nawaz Sharif's sons absconders

The court had also summoned two of prosecution witnesses named Sidra Mansoor of Securities and Exchange Commission of Pakistan (SECP) and Jahangir Ahmad of Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) to record their statements in three references.

Nawaz Sharif has been exempted from appearance for seven days from November 20th while Maryam has been granted exemption for a month.

During the court proceedings, Sharif submitted exemption request from November 20 trial due to the going medical treatment of his wife Kulsoom in London. The duo nominated Jahangir Jadoon as Maryam's representative in her absence.

The court started the trial even though the Islamabad High Court had accepted on Tuesday Sharif's application, in which he had challenged accountability court's refusal to club all three references into one.

Four witnesses have been summoned for the next hearing.

Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif on Tuesday challenged the accountability court's Nov 08 verdict, rejecting his request to conduct a single trial on all three references against him, in the Islamabad High Court (IHC).

"We will take this struggle to its final destination", Nawaz Sharif said while holding informal talks with media when asked to comment on Chairman Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Imran having secured bail in various Cases.

According to the Dawn, Sharif's lawyer Azam Tar said the court took the decision in a hurry.

Last week, the ousted prime minister was indicted separately in each of the three references.

The former premier's family has time and again rejected the allegations and told the court "all corruption charges are based on lies".

The references against the Sharif family pertain to the Azizia Steel Mills and Hill Metals Establishment, their London properties and over dozen offshore companies owned by the family. The judge also provided a copy of the reference - spread over 53 volumes - to Maryam and Safdar.

If convicted, the accused may face up to 14 years imprisonment and lifelong disqualification from holding public office including the freezing of bank accounts and assets.
