ISLAMABAD: Deposed premier Nawaz Sharif reiterated on Wednesday that his conscience was clear as he was not "involved in any corruption".

The remarks by the PML-N supremo came as he was leaving the accountability court after attending the day's proceedings.

The court is set to announce its verdict on December 24 in the remaining two corruption references against members of the Sharif family.

"According to the records of the registrar office, I was presented before the court 78 times," said Nawaz, adding that earlier in accountability court number 1, I was present 87 times, hence, have attended 165 hearings," the PML-N supremo stated.
