Pakistan       by Mahmood Idrees | Published

On Nov 8, Nawaz had accused the superior judiciary of being prejudiced against him, as the accountability court hearing corruption cases against the Sharif family had rejected an application filed by the disqualified premier for clubbing together the three references, and indicted him separately in each of the three references.

November 14: Former Pakistan prime minister Nawaz Sharif on Tuesday challenged the accountability court's decision to not merge the three references filed by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) in the Islamabad High Court. "One account holds $3,992, the second holds 4,272 euros, the third has 207.53 pounds while the fourth has Rs382,381 in it", the report said.

The court was further informed that both brother did have any property in areas handled by the Lahore Development Authority and Defence Housing Authority. They added that a reply is awaited from Bahria Town and the Lahore deputy commissioner.

Accountability Court Judge Muhammad Bashir last month separated the case of Sharif's sons from rest of the family and also initiated proceeding to declare them proclaimed offenders as the two brothers, now in London, have not appeared in the court even once.

Judge Mohammad Bashir had issued non-bailable arrest warrants against them on Oct 2, which are still in effect.
