Former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Tuesday challenged the Accountability Court's orders on his plea seeking to club together three corruption references filed against him by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB), the reports here said.

On Nov 8, Nawaz had accused the superior judiciary of being prejudiced against him, as the accountability court hearing corruption cases against the Sharif family had rejected an application filed by the disqualified premier for clubbing together the three references, and indicted him separately in each of the three references.

NAB told the court that Lahore Development Authority (LDA) and Defence Housing Authority (DHA), Deputy Commissioner Lahore and Bahria Town have provided to details of Hussain's properties.

As the hearing began, the NAB team submitted a report on four bank accounts of owned by Hussain Nawaz. According to it, Hussain has $3992 in an account; $4272 in second account; £207 in third account and Rs.0.3 million in fourth account.

The NAB DPG also observed that all investigation officers had recorded their statements in all three corruption references, and had completed all possible proceedings against Sharif's sons.
