Islamabad(Online): Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, daughter Maryam Nawaz and son-in-law Captain recorded their statements today in the corruption cases against them today.

The three references pertain to the Al-Azizia Steel Mills, offshore companies including Flagship Investment Ltd, and London’s Avenfield properties.
Nawaz and his family members reached the court complex early morning to be present at the hearing, which was conducted by Accountability Court-I Judge Mohammad Bashir.
