Islamabad: Jailed former Pakistan prime minister Nawaz Sharif's daughter Maryam Nawaz was summoned by an anti-corruption court on Tuesday to appear before it on July 19 for allegedly submitting a fake trust deed in the high-profile Avenfield Apartments case.

The Avenfield properties case was one of three filed by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) last year in light of the Supreme Court's verdict against Sharif in the Panama Papers case.

The case pertains to the ownership of the Sharif family's apartments at Avenfield House, London.

An accountability court summoned Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Vice-President Maryam to appear in a case related to the fake trust deed in the Avenfield Apartments case.

Judge Muhammad Bashir issued the notice to Maryam asking the 45-year-old political leader to appear in court on July 19, The Express Tribune reported.

According to the NAB, Pakistan's anti-corruption watchdog, the trust deed Maryam presented in the Avenefield case was fake and have requested a trial against the PML-N leader for fraudulent documents.

In 2017, a Pakistani team investigating former prime minister Sharif alleged illegal offshore properties flagged in the Panama Papers.

Last year in September, the Islamabad High Court suspended the sentences for Maryam and her husband Captain (retd) M Safdar in the Avenfield corruption case.

On July 6, after four extensions in the original six-month deadline to conclude all three cases, the accountability court announced its verdict in the Avenfield case. Sharif, his daughter Maryam and son-in-law Safdar were sentenced to 11 years, eight years and one year, respectively, in prison.

Maryam and Safdar were accused in the Avenfield corruption case only.
