The Accountability Court Judge Mohammad Bashir resumed hearing the Al-Azizia and Flagship corruption references against former prime minister Nawaz Sharif on Monday.

During today's hearing, the court inquired into the presence of Nawaz's counsel Khawaja Haris. His colleague then informed the court that the counsel is on his way.

When the judge asked when the Islamabad High Court (IHC) will take up the Sharif family's pleas against the Avenfield verdict, the secondary counsel replied that their appeals will be heard tomorrow. 

The judge then decided to briefly adjourn today's hearing to allow Nawaz's counsel to appear in court before he takes matters forward. 

After the recess, Judge Bashir observed that he would wait for the IHC's instructions tomorrow. 

The hearing was then adjourned till August 1.
