Two prosecution witness statements were recorded against ousted prime minister Nawaz Sharif, his daughter Maryam Nawaz and son-in-law retired captain Muhammad Safdar in an accountability court as a trial pertaining to three National Accountability Bureau (NAB) references against them went underway on Wednesday. The NAB officials also informed the court that they sent notices to both the brothers through the Foreign Office to flats No. 16, 16A, 17, 17-A, Avenfield House, Park Lane, London, the United Kingdom.

Meanwhile, in response to a plea filed by Nawaz in the Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Tuesday challenging the accountability court's dismissal of his application to club three corruption references against him and his family into one, the court has fixed Nov 20 as the date for the next hearing.The IHC has also sent notices to NAB in this regard.

The hearing has been adjourned till November 22.

Earlier, the court had issued perpetual warrants for Hussain and Hassan Nawaz's arrest and separated their trial from other members of the family.

Two sons of former premier Nawaz Sharif have been declared absconders in multiple corruption cases for their failure to appear before a court in Islamabad on Wednesday, local media reported.

The court officially began hearing of the NAB references today to record statements from witnesses including Securities and Exchange Commission Pakistan (SECP) officer Sidra Mansur and Federal Bureau Revenue's Jahangir Ahmad.

In her application, Maryam said that she would present herself in court whenever there is a hearing. This report was cross examined by Nawaz Sharif's counsel Khawaja Haris and Maryam Nawaz's lawyer. She added that her legal representative, Jahangir Jadoon, will appear in the court in case she has to go overseas.

"These courts have double standards".

Ahmed also submitted the Sharif family's income tax returns in court.

At the last hearing on November 15, the court had dismissed Nawaz's plea seeking the clubbing of the three references against him into one.

The judge also ordered that from now on they will be mentioned as proclaimed offenders in every court order.

It was the 12th hearing of Avenfield properties and Azizia Steel Mills references and 13th hearing of the Flagship Investment reference.

The NAB has in total filed three references against the Sharif family and another against Finance Minister Ishaq Dar in the accountability court, in light of the Supreme Court's orders in the Panama Papers case verdict of July 28.
