LONDON: Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) supremo Nawaz Sharif on Wednesday requested accountability court to postpone verdict in Avenfield reference for few days citing Kulsoom Nawaz’s critical health.

He was talking to media outside Harley Street Clinic in London.

Nawaz went on to say that he would not abscond as he was not a dictator. “I faced unilateral proceedings [in the Avenfield reference]. I want to be in the courtroom to hear the verdict”, added Nawaz.

PML-N chief warned to set an example out of those who are halting the path of masses. He said, “People are aware of revengeful proceedings being carried out against me”.

The supremo stated that he would not let down his stalwarts by displaying cowardly attitude. He added, “I will return to Pakistan even if verdict comes against me. One has to face adversities for accomplishment of the mission”.

Nawaz said he would render any sacrifice for masses’ rights and sanctity of vote.

Nawaz Sharif claimed that Pakistan has been passing through worst phase in its recorded history and warned foes that masses would announce their verdict on July-25.
