ISLAMABAD: An accountability court in Islamabad on Wednesday dismissed three pleas against auction of former prime minister Mian Nawaz Sharif’s seized properties.
Accountability Judge Asghar Ali announced this decision on the three applications moved by Ashraf Malik, Aslam Aziz and Iqbal Barkat seeking to halt auction of the PML-N Chief Nawaz Sharif’s seized properties.
The court had earlier reserved its verdict after hearing arguments of the NAB prosecutor and the applicants’ lawyers. Last month, the former premier’s confiscated agricultural land in Sheikhupura district went under the hammer.
88.4 kanals of agricultural land in Ferozwattan were put up for auction after an accountability court allowed an application filed by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB), seeking directives for the authorities concerned to auction the attached properties of Mian Nawaz Sharif.
