Nawaz’s pleas in Al Azizia, Avenfield corruption references dismissed by IHC

The Islamabad High Court on Thursday dismissed pleas by former prime minister Nawaz Sharif against the imprisonment sentences announced in the Al Azizia Steel Mills and Avenfield apartments references.

IHC judges Justice Umar Farooq and Justice Mohsin Akhtar pronounced a nine-page judgment that was earlier reserved after listening of arguments from the National Accountability Bureau prosecutor and amicus curiae.

The verdict means that the judgment pronounced by the accountability court for the cases has been upheld.

According to the IHC judgment, Nawaz is a proclaimed offender and so “there was no choice but to dismiss the pleas” owing to his continued disappearance from court.
