IHC accepts Nawaz’s plea for early hearing of appeal against Al-Azizia verdict

Nawaz Sharif

ISLAMABAD: The Islamabad High Court (IHC) Wednesday accepted petition of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif for early hearing on his appeal against the Al-Azizia reference verdict.
A two-member divisional bench of the high court, comprising Justice Aamer Farooq and Justice Mohsin Akhtar Kayani, heard the former premier’s petition.
The court accepted his request and instructed the registrar’s office to fix a date within 10 days for hearing Nawaz’s plea.
An accountability court on December 24 had found the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz leader guilty in the Al Azizia Steel Mills reference and sentenced him to seven years in prison.
