Sharif's lawyers on Saturday were in Adiala jail in Rawalpindi, where the two have been lodged, to get the legal papers signed by Sharif and Maryam. Since there was no time to reach court on Saturday, the appeal will now be filed in the court on Monday, the last day for filing the appeal against the order that was delivered on July 6 by the Islamabad Accountability Court.
