Nawaz Sharif, his daughter Maryam, sons Hussain and Hassan Nawaz, son-in-law retired Captain Mohammad Safdar and Finance Minister Ishaq Dar were asked to appear today in connection with three references filed by National Accountability Bureau (NAB) last week on the directions of Supreme Court.

No one from the Sharif family appeared in the court today. They have already stated that they would not appear before the NAB courts until the decision by the Supreme Court about the review petitions.

However, PML-N senior leader Asif Kirmani turned up to the court.

Speaking to media person meanwhile, he said he had informed the court that Nawaz Sharif is in London along with his children due to treatment of his wife Begum Kulsoom Nawaz.

Kirmani said the court accepted his request to defer the hearing and against issued the summons for Sharif family to appear on Sept 26.

The cases are based on the July 28 judgment of the Supreme Court in the Panama Papers case. The court disqualified Sharif and ordered cases be registered against him and his family.
