Nawaz challenges AC decision on combined trial plea
ISLAMABAD: Ex-prime minister Nawaz Sharif today challenged the accountability court’s orders on his plea related to merger of three corruption references filed against him by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB).
Details revealed that Azam Tarar, counsel for Sharif, submitted an application in the Islamabad High Court and pleaded that the decision of the accountability court should be declared null and void as it was given in rapidity without taking into consideration the Islamabad High Court’s detailed verdict on his client’s plea.
The lawyer requested the court to fix the application for hearing today. The accountability court last week rejected ousted prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s plea seeking to club together three corruption references filed against him by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) in the light of Supreme Court verdict in Panama Papers case.
The Islamabad High Court had earlier asked the accountability court to review Nawaz Sharif’s application. -Agencies
