The accountability court allowed former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to be exempted from proceedings owning to his ill health in two supplementary graft references.

Nawaz Sharif had earlier arrived in Islamabad through a special plane to attend the hearing.

When Judge Mohammad Bashir started hearing the Flagship and Al-Azizia reference, Khawaja Haris asked the court to allow his client, Nawaz Sharif , to be exempted from the hearing due to his ill health.

The court agreed and directed Nawaz Sharif to leave after marking his attendance. 

In the last hearing too, regarding Flagship reference, the former PM had been granted a similar exemption.
