Yet another big day for Sharif family

ISLAMABAD – Islamabad High Court Judge Justice Athar Minallah on Tuesday said that if National Accountability Bureau (NAB) prosecutor does not conclude its arguments a verdict will be announced on Sharif family’s pleas challenging the Avenfield verdict tomorrow.

A two-member bench comprising Justice Athar Minallah and Justice Miangul Hassan Aurangzeb heard the petitions filed by former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, his daughter Maryam Nawaz and son-in-law Capt (r) Safdar.

The justice allowed the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) until Wednesday to conclude its arguments.

On Monday, the Supreme Court penalised the bureau for filing a “frivolous” petition blocking the Avenfield verdict suspension pleas before the IHC and fined the anti-graft watchdog Rs20,000.
