ISLAMABAD: An accountability court on Tuesday summoned six accused including former prime minister Yousaf Raza Gillani on July 2, for indictment in a reference pertaining to illegally awarding a publicity campaign through M/S Midas Pvt Ltd.

The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) had nominated a total of seven accused including Yousaf Raza Gillani, Saleem Baig, Inaam Akber and Farooq Awan in the reference. The trial court had ordered the NAB to share copies of the reference with the accused and summoned all of them on next hearing for indictment.
