Nawaz Sharif will be appear today in NAB court.

Judge Mohammad Arshad Malik will hear the case.

Also,  An accountability court on Tuesday postponed the trial proceedings for Al-Azizia reference against former prime minister Nawaz Sharif due to the absence of the defence counsel Khawaja Haris.

Accountability Judge Arshad Malik heard the case, where Nawaz Sharif appeared before the court; however, his lawyer did not.

It was reported that Haris had sent in an application stating he was unwell. Judge Arshad Malik remarked that a similar situation had occurred on Monday, during the last hearing.

Following this, the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) prosecutor Sardar Muzaffar said that he had no objection to Haris’ illness, adding that the law allows junior lawyers to continue the proceeding in the senior counsel’s absence.
