Haris told the IHC that the accountability court judge can not hear the two cases against them as the arguments were similar to those in the Avenfield case. They are the most junior of five judges in the Islamabad High Court.
The bench adjourned the hearing till last week of July which effectively means that hearing will be held after 25 July which will be observed as a holiday to let people cast votes.
Separately, an additional plea was filed asking the court to transfer the Al-Azizia and Flagship Investment references lodged against Sharif from the court of Accountability Judge-I Mohammad Bashir to another accountability court, as per the Geo TV report.

Former Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif is being held in deplorable conditions while awaiting the outcome of his appeal of a 10-year sentence for corruption, his party's spokesman has said.
The court sentenced Nawaz Sharif to 10 years in prison and imposed a fine of 8 million pounds.
Three-time prime minister Nawaz Sharif resigned as Pakistan prime minister previous year after the Supreme Court disqualified him from holding public office and ruled that graft cases be filed against the beleaguered leader and his children over the Panama Papers scandal. On Tuesday, the Islamabad HC had issued notices to NAB, Pakistan's anti-graft watchdog, on all seven petitions filed by Sharif, Maryam and Safdar and adjourned the hearing till the last week of July. Maryam's legal counsel Amjad Pervaiz stated that the accountability court's verdict in the Avenfield case was not in compliance with the law. "Our case is very strong and on merit". Furthermore, the court was appealed to release Sharif, Maryam and Safdar on bail respectively.
"We expect justice from the court", he said.
On 6 July, after four extensions in the original six-month deadline to conclude all three cases, the court announced its verdict in the Avenfield case.
While Sharif and his UK-based sons, Hussain and Hasan are named in all the three corruption cases - Avenfield reference, Flagship Investment and Al-Azizia reference, Maryam and Safdar are only named in the Avenfield case.
