ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Senator Syed Asif Kirmani on Tuesday said since Begum Kulsoom Nawaz was not well and family members had to take care of her in London; therefore, an exact date could not be given about their return to Pakistan.

The advisor said he had informed the accountability court hearing the references against Sharif family members as per the directives of Supreme Court of Pakistan that members of Sharif family were in London due to illness of Begum Kulsoom Nawaz.
“Staff of Sharif family had received summons for the family to appear before the court. I have informed the court that they are in London due to illness of Kulsoom Nawaz,” Kirmani told media.
Senator Asif Kirmani said the court had issued fresh notice for the family members to appear before it on September 26.
Kirmani said Hassan and Hussain Nawaz were not residents of Raiwind as he stated to pass information to those about whom the court had directed.
