Nawaz Sharif addresses press conference at Punjab House | Pakistan

ISLAMABAD: Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif is addressing a press conference at the Punjab House. 

Senior party leaders, including Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan and Finance Minister Ishaq Dar, are present alongside the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz leader. 

Nawaz began his address by deploring the incident at the accountability court earlier today when a journalist was manhandled. 

Nawaz returned to the country on Monday after spending over three weeks in London to spend time with his wife, Kulsoom, who is undergoing treatment for lymphoma. 

On Tuesday, Nawaz appeared before the accountability court which is hearing three corruption references against him and his family. 

The court has set October 2 as the date of the next hearing, when it will indict the ousted prime minister. After his court appearance, Nawaz returned to the Punjab House, where he met several political leaders and party officials, including Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi and Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-F chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman.
