Accountability court to hear Al-Azizia, Flagship Investment references today

An accountability court will hear the Al-Azizia Mills and Flagship Investment corruption references against Nawaz Sharif on Monday.
Nawaz was transported from Adiala prison, where he is currently incarcerated following the Avenfield verdict, to the court premises in the federal capital amid tight security.   
Accountabilit court II Judge Arshad Malik will hear the case today.  
The trial
The trial against the Sharif family commenced on September 14, 2017.
On July 6, after four extensions in the original six-month deadline to conclude all three cases, the court announced its verdict in the Avenfield reference.
Nawaz and his sons, Hussain and Hasan, are accused in all three references whereas Maryam and Safdar were accused in the Avenfield reference only.
The two brothers, based abroad, have been absconding since the proceedings began last year and were declared proclaimed offenders by the court.
On July 10, the Supreme Court granted another six-week extension for Accountability Court-I Judge Mohammad Bashir to conclude the remaining corruption references against Nawaz and former finance minister Ishaq Dar.
