Nawaz Sharif's counsel Azam Tarar challenged Accountability Court's order with an application and requested the court to annul the decision arguing it was given in haste without taking into consideration the IHC's detailed verdict on his client's plea.

The petition pleads the IHC to direct the accountability court "to frame one charge and conduct a single trial" against the Sharif family in the three corruption references filed by the National Accountability Bureau.

Last week, the ousted prime minister was indicted separately in each of the three references.

Begum Kulsoom Nawaz, former prime minister Nawaz Sharif's spouse, will receive her third chemotherapy next week, a private news channel reported on Tuesday citing sources.

Bans also are common in other countries, including Australia, Israel, Brazil, Japan and across much of Europe. The city of Denver officially banned the practice of cat declawing during Monday night's council meeting.

Nawaz and his family are facing three corruption references filed by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) in light of the Supreme Court's judgment in the Panama Papers case.

Nawaz Sharif is nominated suspect in references regarding Avenfield properties, Azizia Steel Mills and Flagship Investment, while Maryam Nawaz and her husband Captain (r) Safdar are nominated in reference regarding Avenfield properties alone. Thus, he added, separate references cannot be filed against him, requesting the court to club together all three references.

According to the Dawn, Sharif's lawyer Azam Tar said the court took the decision in a hurry.
