Avenfiled case in near to conclusion as the court may reserve its verdict.

Nawaz and his family members are facing three corruption references in the accountability court — Avenfield Properties, Al-Azizia Steel Mills and Flagship Investments — in which they are accused of money laundering, tax evasion and hiding offshore assets.

“You may challenge this verdict in the high court,” remarked Accountability Judge Muhammad Bashir after dismissing the petition.

The court then ordered to resume cross-examination of Panamagate Joint Investigation Team (JIT) head Wajid Zia in Al-Azizia reference.

It is pertinent to mention that the set 2nd deadline by the Supreme Court of Pakistan to conclude cases will end on June 9th, 2018.

Accountability Court Mohammad Bashir will write a letter to the apex court seeking third extension, sources confided.
