Sharif family gets a relief from the Supreme Court

ISLAMABAD - Sharif family gets a relief from the Supreme Court on Monday.

SC has rejected a petition by National Accountability Bureau (NAB) against the Sharif family.

NAB had challenged the Islamabad High Court’s (IHC) decision to hear deposed prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s plea for his sentence in the Avenfield reference.

Imposing a fine of Rs20,000 on NAB, the Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Mian Saqib Nisar remarked that justice should be served to the petitioners, asking why does the anti-graft body file such baseless petitions.

“This is the regular mechanism. What is illegal in the IHC’s order?”, remarked CJP admonishing NAB Prosecutor Akram Qureshi for challenging high court’s decision.
