On Friday, Maryam Nawaz, the daughter of the Former Pakistani Prime Minister, Nawaz Sharif and her husband Capt (retd.) Muhammad Safdar Awan's lawyer Amjad Pervez recommenced his concluding arguments in the Avenfield reference.
After the hearing restarted, the defence counsel presented prosecution witness Mazhar Raza Bangash's letter and interrogated about its authenticity.
Lawyer Pervez, as quoted by the Geo News, asserted, "Bangash said he presented the record in a sealed envelope, however, NAB's witness Zawar Manzoor has said that the envelope was not sealed.
Lawyer Pervez argued that the documents submitted by Bangash were merely photocopies and as per Pakistan's Qanun-e-Shahadat Order, 1984 (Law of Evidence), could not be included in court's records.
