The accountability court on Thursday dismissed pleas of ousted premier Nawaz Sharif and daughter Maryam Nawaz seeking brief exemption from appearance. 

As per details, Nawaz and daughter Maryam had submitted the request seeking exemption from appearing in court for a week starting March 26 for the Avenfield properties case hearing. 

A medical report of Nawaz's wife, Kalsoom, was attached along with the request.

Nawaz's counsel Khawaja Haris informed the judge that Kulsoom will be undergoing chemotherapy and her doctors have advised Nawaz's presence beside his wife. 

The request states that Ali Aimal and Jahangir Jadoon will appear in place of Nawaz and Maryam respectively. 

Kalsoom Nawaz has been in London undergoing treatment for lymphoma since late last year.

Opposing the request, prosecutor Afzal Qureshi argued that the suspects should not be allowed to leave the country as the trial is in its concluding stages.  

An earlier similar request of Nawaz to visit his ailing wife was turned down by the court.
