Panamagate: Nawaz Sharif to be indicted on Oct 13

She said that the next general elections would be held on time in 2018 and the government would complete its tenure.

She furnished a surety bond of Rs5 million to secure bail in the case.

Meanwhile, the court has rejected NAB's request to confiscate Safdar's passport and to issue his judicial remand, however, the accused has been directed not to leave the country without court's permission.

Captain Mohammad Safdar, who is also a member of the lower house, the National Assembly, was taken into custody at the Islamabad airport late Sunday night soon after his return from London with his wife Mariyam Nawaz.

Before leaving for Islamabad, Maryam Nawaz said the cases against the family were not for justice but for revenge.

Later, the hearing was adjourned until Oct 13.

Ex-PM Nawaz Sharif's counsel Khawaja Haris filed an application praying the court to grant an exemption to his client from appearing before the court as he is in London to attend his wife undergoing treatment for cancer.

Both Capt Safdar and Maryam Nawaz are scheduled to appear before the court in connection with the NAB reference pertaining to London properties owned by the Sharif family.

The Court also declared Hassan Nawaz and Hussain Nawaz as proclaimed offenders after they consistently failed to appear before the Court. Maryam was with him but she was not arrested.

Ousted Pakistan prime minister Nawaz Shairif's daughter Maryam Nawaz, after appearing before the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) court on Monday, said that she was not afraid of getting arrested.

In July, Sharif was disqualified from office.

On October 2, Sharif's indictment on charges of corruption was deferred by a NAB court till October 9.

She arrived at the court accompanied by senior Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leaders and ministers.

The former prime minister and members of his family are facing three graft references in connection with their flats in a posh London neighbourhood, Al Azizia Steel Mills and Flagship Company Ltd and other offshore companies.
