The court will announce verdict in the absence of Sharifs Family.
The accountability court Judge Muhammad Bashir had reserved the judgement after proceedings of Avenfield reference against Sharif family were completed.

The Pakistan Supreme Court, on July 28, had disqualified Sharif from holding the office of the prime minister and asked the National Accountability Bureau to file references against the Sharif family in connection with corruption cases against them.
On the orders of the apex Court, a JIT was formed last year to probe the allegations on the Sharif family.
