Judge Bashir heard the first corruption reference, pertaining to the Avenfield flats, against the Sharif family.

The lawyer also moved yet another application to transfer his remaining cases to another court after conviction in Avenfield case by Justice Mohammad Bashir, who is also hearing the Al-Azizia Steel Mills and Flagship reference cases.

Sharif was sentenced to 10 years and one year sentence, Maryam seven years and one year and Safdar to one year rigorous sentences on July 6.

Haris also informed the court that despite multiple attempts made over the last two days, access to the former premier was not granted and claimed that the objective of the trial being conducted within jail premises is to ensure that no one can see or hear Nawaz before elections.

Khawaja Harris, legal counsel of Nawaz Sharif, argued that it was a case of having assets beyond known sources of income but the NAB prosecutor and investigator failed to provide valuation of the Avenfield properties during the trial.

Earlier, on July 17, the IHC had issued notices to the National Accountability Bureau on all the pleas and adjourned the hearing till the last week of July.

Lawyers of the convicts highlighted legal lacunae in the accountability court verdict during the hearing and urged the court to suspend the imprisonment sentences of their clients until a final decision of the Islamabad High Court.

A Pakistani court today adjourned until last week of July the hearing of appeals filed by jailed former premier Nawaz Sharif, his daughter and son-in-law against their conviction in a corruption case, shattering their hope to come out of jail before polls to boost the campaign of their party. However, he insisted that the request was limited to one hearing, that was to be held one day after the arrival and arrest of Sharif and Maryam. All the three are presently lodged in the Adiala Jail, Rawalpindi.

The sentence and a fine of 8 million pounds, or $10.6 million, came nearly a year after Supreme Court removed Sharif from office and less than five months after the court barred him from holding office for life.

According to him, the party will release more audio and, if possible, video messages of Sharif and her daughter during the party's electioneering if the duo is denied bail in the Avenfield case.

Two hearings of the corruption references have been held since the law ministry's notification; however, both of them have been held in the accountability court's building.
