Speaking to the media after his appearance before the accountability court, Nawaz said that judges who took oath under Pervez Musharraf are called PCO judges.

"What is the difference between these judges and Imran Khan", he questioned.

Sharif and his family members are being tried in accountability court for alleged corruption. "I don't accept such verdicts", said Naaz, adding that God is with those whose intentions and heart is pure.

Moreover, he said these people want to build a 10-storey building on rickety foundations.

Moreover, on Wednesday, NAB Rawalpindi filed two supplementary references against Nawaz, Hussain and Hasan in the Al-Azizia Steel Mills & Hill Metal Establishment and offshore companies including Flagship Investment Ltd cases.

The three appeared today in the courtroom of Accountability Court-I Judge Mohammad Bashir. However, NAB Deputy Prosecutor General Muzaffar Abbasi opposed the plea citing the nearing of the March deadline by the Supreme Court to wrap up the case. On Tuesday, the accountability court expressed displeasure over the NAB's delay in the filing of supplementary references.

Sharif along with his sons - Hussain and Hassan - has been named in three NAB references, while his daughter Maryam Nawaz and son-in-law Capt (r) Safdar have been nominated in a reference with regard to the Sharif family's London-based Avenfield properties.

Meanwhile talking to media, the State Minister for Information Marriyum Aurangzeb outside the Accountability Court said supplementary references were being filed repeatedly but nothing was proved in previous six references.

NAB was also allowed to record witnesses statements through video link in Avenfield reference against Sharif family and directed to approach Robert Radley and Raja Akhtar.

This comes in the wake of Nawaz Sharif and Maryam Nawaz's appeal to the court to grant them immunity from appearing at hearings since Kulsoom Nawaz was ill and was about to undergo important tests in London.
