Yet another futile attempt by Nawaz, Maryam for release from Adiala Jail
LAHORE – Maryam Nawaz and Nawaz Sharif have made yet another futile attempt for release from the Adiala Jail.
A petitioh has been filed in the Lahore High Court challenging the ongoing National Accountability Bureau (NAB) references against former prime minister Nawaz Sharif.
According to the petition, NAB Ordinance (NAO), 1999 had no legal value after the passage of the 18th amendment and therefore should be expunged.
It added that the impugned ordinance was promulgated by then military dictator/president Pervez Musharraf under the Provisional Constitutional Order (PCO) No. 1 of 1999 as well as order No 9 of 1999.
