ISLAMABAD: Captain (retd) Safdar is going to record his statement in Accountability Court for Avenfield Reference.
Nawaz Sharif and Maryam Nawaz also appeared before the court in the hearing at Accountability Court. However; they both left shortly after marking their attendance. While Nawaz Sharif’s son-in-law, Capt (retd) Safdar will record his statement in the Avenfield Reference today.
Previously Daughter and Father, Nawaz and Maryam both have testified in the court. Accountability Court had provided a questionnaire of 128 questions to both. They recorded their statement answering the questions asked in the questionnaire.
While recording her statement yesterday, Maryam had denied being beneficial owner of London Flats or Offshore Companies. She said that Nielsen and Nescoll and London flats belong to brother. She said she never took any monetary benefit from these companies ever.
She also said that the 25% shares of Gulf Steel Mills, Al-Taufiq case, and settlement worth Rs12 million have nothing to do with her. Maryam said that the Capital FZE documents don’t concern her either. She said the documents submitted by JIT were for contemptible purposes.
Maryam Nawaz also recorded her reservations against JIT and JIT head Wajid Zia. She said that Zia used his cousin’s firm for attaining documents used as evidence which is suspicious. Nawaz had also recorded a similar sort of statement during his turn to testify.
The Avenfield Reference is one of the three corruption cases ongoing in Accountability Court against Sharif Family. The cases were filed by NAB under the orders by Supreme Court after Panama Papers had surfaced.
