ISLAMABAD: A top Pakistani court today ordered authorities to produce jailed former prime minister Nawaz Sharif on Monday in connection with the two other corruption cases against him spiraling from the Panama Papers leak.

The accountability court of judge Arshad Malik held first hearing of the two graft cases the Flagship Investment case and the Al-Azizia Steel Mills and Hill Metal Establishment case against Sharif after Islamabad High Court (IHC) this week accepted his plea to transfer the two cases to another judge.

Three cases were filed against Sharif and family last year.

Sharif, 68, along with his daughter Maryam, 44 and his son-in-law Capt (retd) Muhammad Safdar are already serving jail terms of 10-years, seven years and one year respectively in Adiala jail in Rawalpindi, after an accountability court convicted them on July 6 over the family’s ownership of four luxury flats in London.

Sharif launched an appeal against the conviction in the IHC on July 16. On the same day he filed an application to transfer the remaining two cases to another court.

The IHC this week approved the application seeking transfer of pending corruption cases against Sharif and his two sons to another accountability court headed by judge Malik.

As judge Malik resumed hearing today he asked the prosecution about presence of Sharif and was told by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) lawyer that he was in jail and was not brought to the court due to security reasons.

The judge adjourned the hearing till Monday and ordered that Sharif should be produced for the hearing.

Apart from Sharif, his two sons Hassan and Hussain are also co-accused on all three cases.

The court has already declared the two sons as absconders due to their persistent failure to appear before the court and they have been placed on the blacklist by the authorities, barring them from travelling on their Pakistani passports.

Separately, the IHC will take up the hearing of the appeals of Sharif, his daughter and son-in-law against their conviction in the Avenfield properties corruption case on Monday. PTI
