ISLAMABAD: Former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Tuesday challenged the accountability court’s Nov 08 verdict, rejecting his request to conduct a single trial on all three references against him, in the Islamabad High Court (IHC).
Nawaz has challenged the decision in the Islamabad High Court (IHC) through his lawyer Azam Tarar, stating that the verdict was given in haste and the accountability court did not take into account the points in the earlier IHC verdict.
The petition pleads the IHC to direct 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.
The IHC should also suspend accountability court proceedings till the framing of a joint charge against the Sharifs, the petition requests. INP
