ISLAMABAD – Sharif family may land back in Adiala jail if Supreme Court turns down Islamabad High Court order over suspension of sentence to Sharif family members.
NAB is seeking Supreme Court orders against IHC decision in its appeal to the Apex Court.
The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) will challenge Islamabad High Court (IHC) verdict of suspending sentences of ex-prime minister Nawaz Sharif, his daughter Maryam Nawaz and son-in-law Captain (r) Safdar in Avenfield reference, in the Supreme Court next week.
Sources said that the anti-graft watchdog has started preparations to challenge the verdict in the apex court and an attested copy of IHC verdict has been obtained.
The NAB officials have directed the prosecution to contest the case in a full-fledge manner.
Earlier, IHC had suspended sentences of ex-prime minister Nawaz Sharif, his daughter Maryam Nawaz and son-in-law Captain (r) Safdar in Avenfield reference.
Justice Athar Minallah, while announcing the verdict, directed to release Nawaz Sharif, Maryam Nawaz and Captain (r) Safdar over surety bonds worth Rs0.5 million each until final decision on their pleas.
