Nawaz challenges AC's decision on joint trial plea

14 November 2017

According to the petition, the IHC had directed the accountability court to frame one charge and conduct a single trial against the Sharif family in the three corruption references filed by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB).

As the deadline for Nawaz Sharif's sons to appear in court in connection to the accountability references against them lapsed, the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on Tuesday requested the court seize Hassan and Hussain Nawaz's properties.

Another case was filed against finance minister Ishaq Dar based on the court ruling.

In his petition, Nawaz requested the high court to set aside the verdict of the accountability court through which it had rejected his plea.

The NAB prosecutor also asked the court to declare them proclaimed offenders as the time given them to ensure appearance in the court has expired.

Hassan and Hussain failed to appear in court despite the issuance of a proclamation against them last month, the NB deputy prosecutor general (DPG) said, adding that the notice had been pasted on the premises of the Federal Judicial Complex (FJC) on Oct 12. However, the judge adjourned the proceeding till tomorrow without announcing his decision.

The three references related to the Sharif family's London flats, Flagship Investment Ltd and Al Azizia & Hill Metal Establishment.

The court has already issued non-bailable arrest warrants against the two brothers.

Meanwhile, the court also took up the hearing of trial against Dar who is in London to seek medical treatment for heart complications.

On Nov 8, Nawaz had accused the superior judiciary of being prejudiced against him, as the accountability court hearing corruption cases against the Sharif family had rejected an application filed by the disqualified premier for clubbing together the three references, and indicted him separately in each of the three references.
