The court also rejected an application filed by Advocate A K Dogar on behalf of Sharif requesting that Justice Naqvi recuse himself from the full bench.
PTI Central Information Secretary Fawad Chaudhry said that the court has awakened the regulator, the Pakistan Electronic Media Regularity Authority (PEMRA) through its decision. The bench also issued a notice to PEMRA, instructing the regulatory body to present their point of view on the matter.
The case of the Sharif family's upscale London flats is based on a reference filed by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on the Supreme Court's directives past year.
Sharif, 68, is facing three corruption cases linked to the Panama Papers case in an anti-graft court.
Imran Khan, the former cricketer and political foe of Mr Sharif, suggested... This will be the 11th hearing of this case in the Accountability court, where after Nawaz Sharif's defence, Maryam's counsel will be cross examining Wajid Zia. "A person dissatisfied at a verdict should file a review petition", he said.
A petitioner, Amina Malik, told the court that Sharif, his daughter Maryam, son-in-law Capt (retd) Muhammad Safdar, Interior Minister Talal Chaudhry and Punjab law minister Rana Sanaullah verbally attacked the Supreme Court judges in a rally in Jaranwala (some 150-km from Lahore) for disqualifying Sharif from the office of prime minister.
The Supreme Court, however, dismissed multiple contempt of court petitions against the ousted prime minister last month, saying on one occasion: "Commenting cleanly on a [court] decision is the right of every citizen".
Maryam Nawaz said those who had been leaving PML-N were not taking away party's vote bank with them.
According to details, new documents have been obtained by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) from London which state that the Sharif family's London apartments were transferred to the possession of offshore companies Nielson and Nescoll in 1993-1995.
