Hearing of NAB references against former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and his family members has been adjourned till Wednesday next.

"Maryam is voicing the public concerns; if justice is being done, it should be evident to all", Aurangzeb maintained. He claimed that his pleader, Zafir Khan would ensure appearances on his behalf during his absence.

She vented her anger on her official twitter account stating that Imran Khan's case was far more serious in terms of legal implications than Iqama joke and the nation was now waiting to see the decision in his case.

"The records that NAB has presented in court hold my signatures and thumb impressions", Mansoor said, adding that among other things the records also contained audit reports of the Sharif family's various businesses. He asked for one week exemption from November 20.

Also on Tuesday, the bench had rejected a miscellaneous application of the former prime minister seeking to restrain the trial court from proceeding in the NAB references until his application is decided.

He said the court ruling also carried a message that seemed to suggest "Nawaz Sharif be punished at any cost". "We are waging a struggle against courts' double standards, and would take this struggle to a logical end", said he. She added that her legal representative, Jahangir Jadoon, will appear in the court in case she has to go overseas.

Ahmad has been called to appear in court again in Nov 22 for cross-questioning in the next hearing of the case.

Thus, he added, separate references cannot be filed against him, requesting the court to club together all three references.

Rejecting the charges in the three references and pleading not guilty, as his representative had done earlier, Nawaz said in court that he was denied the right to a fair trial and his basic rights were not protected.

The anti-graft body was given six weeks, from the date of the apex court's order, to file the reference in an accountability court while the accountability court was granted six months to wrap up the proceedings.

According to evidence submitted by the National Accountability Bureau, Sharif family owns four posh London apartments, two steel mills in Saudi Arabia and several offshore companies in the United Kingdom.

Nawaz, along with Maryam and Safdar had earlier reached Islamabad from Lahore. The judge also provided a copy of the reference - spread over 53 volumes - to Maryam and Safdar.

NAB had filed three references on Sept 8 against Sharif and his family, and another reference against Finance Minister Ishaq Dar.
