Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif requested the accountability court on Wednesday to delay the announcement of the judgment in the Avenfield case so he could be with his ailing wife.
“I want to see my wife in conscious condition before returning to Pakistan,” said Nawaz.
“I am not a dictator who will run away from the courts,” he said, while speaking to the media outside Harley Clinic. “My wife has been on a ventilator since the last 21 days. I want to hear theverdict in the court roomwhere I have presented myself with my daughter over 100 times.”
Earlier, the accountability court said it will announce its verdict in the Avenfield reference case on July 6.
