In a massive setback to Nawaz Sharif, the Pakistan Supreme Court on Friday dismissed the review petitions filed by the deposed Prime Minister and his children against the July 28 Panama Papers judgement.

The Islamabad-based accountability court today ordered Sharif and his children - Maryam, Hussain and Hassan and son-in-law captain (retd) Muhammad Safdar - to appear before it on September 19 in Azizia Steel Mill, Hill Metal and Avenfield properties cases.

With the rejection of the review petitions, Sharif's disqualification as a member of the Parliament remains valid.

Addressing a women convention in Karim Park, Lahore, she reiterated that Sharif was disqualified because he did not take income from his son, Geo News reported.

Talking to reporters outside the court, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz leader and Minister for Information Technology Anusha Rahman said the court's decision was a "disappointment" for her party.

Lahore's NA-120 constituency will perhaps see the first of its kind by-polls in its long history when at least 44 candidates will join the tug of war on Sunday.

Marriyum declared the PML-N would emerge triumphant who fought the battle against the scourge of terrorism, built road network across the country and gifted the posterity a mega-project like CPEC.

As the former first lady is now undergoing medical treatment in London, her daughter Maryam spearheaded the campaign in the constituency.

The apex court has fixed September 18 for hearing the petition, a day after the NA-120 by-poll is scheduled to be held in the constituency considered a stronghold of the Sharif family.
