State Information Minister Marriyum Aurangzeb said on Wednesday former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif's daughter Maryam Nawaz was raising the public concerns through her tweets, denying an impression of slandering judiciary.

His counsel stated that Nawaz's pleader, Zafir Khan, will appear on the former premier's behalf during his absence. The court on October 9 separated the trial of Hassan and Hussain and also ordered to initiate the process of declaring them proclaimed offenders.

She further claimed that she had provided the bureau with the 2000-2005 audit report of Hudabiya Paper Mills.

Sharif, in his application, had asked to be exempted from trial hearings as the next spell of his wife's chemotherapy is about to begin.

Meanwhile, in response to a plea filed by Nawaz in the Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Tuesday challenging the accountability court's dismissal of his application to club three corruption references against him and his family into one, the court has fixed Nov 20 as the date for the next hearing.The IHC has also sent notices to NAB in this regard.

Ahmad has been called to appear in court again in Nov 22 for cross-questioning in the next hearing of the case. He hoped that their struggle would lead to logical conclusion. However, she added, if some emergency arises, her pleader Jahangir Jadoon will appear on her behalf.

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

On October 26 analysts at BMO Capital Markets released research on BWLD stating a rating of "Hold" and price target of $120.00. The company had revenue of $496.70 million during the quarter, compared to analyst estimates of $500.97 million.

Rejecting the charges in the three references and pleading not guilty, as his representative had done earlier, Nawaz said in court that he was denied the right to a fair trial and his basic rights were not protected.

A five-member bench of the Supreme Court on July 28 had directed NAB to file cases against Sharif and his children in the accountability court and directed the trial court to decide the references within six months.

According to evidence submitted by the National Accountability Bureau, Sharif family owns four posh London apartments, two steel mills in Saudi Arabia and several offshore companies in the United Kingdom.

Maryam and Safdar are only nominated in the London properties reference.

Nawaz, along with Maryam and Safdar had earlier reached Islamabad from Lahore.

NAB's Rawalpindi branch prepared two references regarding the Azizia Steel Mills and Hill Metals Establishment, and the almost dozen companies owned by the Sharif family.

NAB had filed three references on Sept 8 against Sharif and his family, and another reference against Finance Minister Ishaq Dar.
