IHC objects to NAB petition seeking Nawaz Sharif’s bail cancellation

ISLAMABAD: The Islamabad High Court has raised objection over a petition filed by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) seeking cancellation of former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s bail in the Avenfield reference.

The Registrar’s Office of the Islamabad High Court has raised technical objections to the NAB’s request. The bureau had yesterday filed a petition seeking cancellation of Nawaz Sharif’s bail in the Avenfield

reference, in which it was held that the IHC had suspended Nawaz Sharif’s sentence in the Avenfield  reference and the Supreme Court had also suspended Nawaz Sharif’s sentence. The decision of the High Court was upheld.

The NAB took the position that Nawaz Sharif misused the suspension and bail. Nawaz Sharif did not deserve this concession after going abroad. Nawaz Sharif’s Avenfield reference should be suspended and bail should be abolished.

The National Accountability Bureau pleaded that Nawaz Sharif is a fugitive and the former prime minister’s bail should be revoked and his arrest allowed.

The Islamabad High Court had granted bail to Nawaz Sharif in the Avenfield reference in 2018. In the Avenfield reference, the Sharif family is accused of buying four residential apartments near Mayfair and Park Lane in London’s most expensive area with money raised through illegal means.

The accountability court had sentenced Nawaz Sharif, his daughter Maryam and his son-in-law Captain (retd) Safdar to jail, imprisonment, and fine.
