LAHORE: The Lahore High Court (LHC) on Monday ordered former prime minister (PM) Nawaz Sharif to appear on October 8 in a high treason case.

The bench was headed by Justice Mazahar Ali Naqvi who was hearing the case which was filed against Nawaz, Shahid Khaqan Abbasi and journalist Cyril Almeida.

During the hearing, Abbasi was present in the court while Nawaz and Almeida did not appear.  Moreover, the court also issued non-bailable arrest warrants for Almeida.

However, Nawaz’s Lawyer Naseer Bhutta told the court that former PM was not able to appear as people were visiting him to condole the recent death of his wife Kulsoom Nawaz. He also requested the court to postpone the next hearing until his wife’s chaliswan.

Justice Naqvi accepted defence counsel’s request and postponed the hearing til October 8.
