ISLAMABAD: Islamabad High Court (IHC) Wednesday adjourned hearing till December 9 on pleas by Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Maryam Nawaz and Captain (retd) Safdar against sentences awarded to them by accountability court.

During the hearing, Justice Amir Farooq remarked that an appeal by Nawaz Sharif against sentence in the same case is being heard by the court. Warrants for arrest of former prime minister have been issued and let’s first conclude this issue than all appeals can be heard together, court remarked.

Talking to media outside IHC, Maryam rejects reports that a representative of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif met Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa.

She said that political decisions should be made in parliament not at the General Headquarters (GHQ).

"I don't know about a dinner, maybe it was not a dinner [but] I heard about the meeting. From what I understand it was called to discuss Gilgit-Baltistan which is a political issue, an issue of the people's representatives, for them to solve and deliberate upon," she added.

Talking about health of PML-N supremo, she said that Nawaz Sharif needs to get operated but surgery has been postponed due to coronavirus outbreak as former prime minister has weak immune system.

Earlier, before arrival, Maryam Nawaz received warm welcome by the party workers at Bara Kahu.
