RAWALPINDI: A local accountability court is currently hearing a case regarding re-opening the NAB references against Sharif brothers, SAMAA reports Saturday.
Giving arguments before the court, Akarm Sheikh, the counsel of Sharif brothers said re-opening cases against Sharif brothers after a hiatus of ten years is based on dishonesty.
The prosecutor of the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) said it is the right of the Bureau to request for the reopening of the cases against Sharif family.
Akram Sheikh submitted that the NAB can only request for the case; but, notices cannot be issued, as there is stay order by higher judiciary on Sharifs’ plea.
Sharifs’ counsel argued the NAB prayed to close these cases in 2002; now, they have remembered after ten years to prosecute these cases again.
Judge of Accountability court Abdul Haq queried if Ishaq Dar was an approver against Sharif family in Hudaibia Paper Mills reference. However, Akram Sheikh said he has no knowledge of the same. SAMAA
