ISLAMABAD: The accountability court on Friday dismissed Nawaz Sharif's   plea seeking delay in pronouncement of judgement in a corruption reference against him.

The application was filed by Sharif's lawyers on Thursday in which the   ousted prime minister  and his daughter Maryam Nawaz requested the court to  defer its judgment for a week since they are abroad and unable to  attend the hearing.

Sharif's close aide Senator Asif Kirmani was also  present in the jam-packed courtroom along with defence council Amjad Pervaiz.

 The former prime minister said he would return to the country as soon as his wife shows some signs of improvement in her health condition.

The court on Tuesday reserved verdict  in one of three corruption references against  Sharif and his family members and fixed July  6th as the date for  pronouncement of the decision.

Prosecution says Sharif faces maximum 14-year jail term in the corruption reference related to his London properties.
