A Pakistani judge has recused himself from hearing a petition filed against the conviction and sentencing of former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, his daughter and son-in-law in the Avenfield properties corruption case. 

Geo TV said, Lahore High Court's (LHC) Justice Shams Mehmood Mirza, who headed a three-member bench constituted by LHC Chief Justice on the 4th of this month to hear the petition, recused himself citing personal reasons.

Justice Sajid Mehmood Sethi and Justice Mujahid Mustaqeem made up the rest of the bench.

Following the breakup of the bench formed to hear the petition, Justice Mirza has referred the matter to LHC chief justice.

On the 6th of last month, Sharif, Maryam and Capt (retd) Safdar were convicted for not disclosing details of the purchase of four posh apartments in London. 

The three-time Pakistan premier is serving a 10-year jail term in a corruption case over his family's purchase of luxury apartments in London. He has been lodged in the Adiala Jail since the 13th of last month.
