ISLAMABAD (HRNW) – Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Tuesday has directed Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) supremo and former Prime Minister (PM) Nawaz Sharif to surrender before the court and appear on September 10 at any cost.

During the proceedings in Avenfield reference, Nawaz Sharif’s counsel Khawaja Harris has recorded his arguments on a appeal seeking his client‘s exemption from the hearing.

The judge added that skipping appearances in the trial is also a crime over which, the counsel said that Nawaz Sharif is undergoing medical treatment, however, he will return after fully recovering from the illness.
