The Accountability Court-II has summoned former prime minister Nawaz Sharif on Monday in two remaining corruption references against him and his family. 

The Accountability Court Judge Arshad Malik issued orders while hearing the Al-Azizia and Flagship Investment references . 

Judge Malik also directed the prosecution to present Panamagate Joint Investigation Team (JIT) head and prosecution's star witness Wajid Zia for the hearing on August 13.

During today's hearing, Judge Malik questioned National Accountability Bureau's (NAB) Deputy Prosecutor General Sardar Muzaffar Abbasi regarding the progress in investigations into the two remaining corruption references.

The NAB prosecutor told the judge, "After Wajid Zia, only one more witness's statements need to be recorded."

He continued, "There are three suspects in both the references. Investigation is ongoing against Nawaz while his sons, Hasan and Hussain, have already been declared absconders in the case."

The hearing was then adjourned till Monday. 

Earlier, on August 7, the Islamabad High Court (IHC) transferred the two references to Accountability Court-II.

A two-member bench of the IHC, comprising Justice Aamer Farooq and Justice Miangul Hassan Aurangzeb, ordered transfer of the cases on Nawaz's plea.

Nawaz’s lawyer had filed an appeal requesting the court to transfer the Al-Azizia and Flagship Investment references from the court of Accountability Judge-I Mohammad Bashir to another accountability court .
