AC Reserves Verdict On NAB Plea To Include Docs

The accountability court on Tuesday reserved its verdict over a plea from the former Panama JIT Head Wajid Zia to include three letters in the case proceedings.
The Judge Muhammad Bashir was heading the proceedings of the reference filed by NAB against Sharif Family in Avanfield apartments case.
NAB prosecutors submitted a request in court to be allowed to submit the Qatari letter and two other documents as evidence. The documents include a letter from the attorney general of British Virgin Islands to Zia.
The plea was opposed by the the counsel of Maryam Nawaz who said that why the prosecutor did not submit the documents before.
Zia told the accountability court during a hearing on the Avenfield Flats reference that the trust deeds submitted by Maryam Nawaz and her brothers Hassan and Hussain during the probe were forged.
Zia told the accountability court that the JIT had sent the trust deeds of offshore companies Nielsen and Nescoll submitted by Maryam during the Panamagate case to a London-based firm, Radley Forensic Document Laboratory, for forensic examination.
According to a forensic report issued by the firm, the JIT concluded that the documents were fake, he added.
