ISLAMABAD: Ousted prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s daughter Maryam Nawaz said on Tuesday that her father ‘must not’ appear before the accountability court hearing the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) references filed against him and his family.

“He should not. Must not [...] It’s a FARCE,” Maryam tweeted while responding to a tweet from journalist Iftikhar Ahmed who asked, “Will Nawaz Sharif appear before NAB [National Accountability Bureau] court?” She tweeted that despite reservations her family had appeared before the joint investigation team (JIT) probing their offshore assets hoping that “our judicial system will follow a legal path & will not come under pressure.” However, she insisted that her father must not appear before the court and fall prey to ‘political & personal victimisation in the garb of accountability”. On July 28, a five-member top court bench hearing the Panama Papers case had disqualified Nawaz Sharif from the PM’s office for failing to declare a salary which he reportedly had not withdrawn as an executive of Dubai-based company owned by his son as an asset when filing his nomination papers in 2013
