NAB appeal to SC to reopen Hudaibiya Paper Mills case

ISLAMABAD: The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) is probably going to a make a move towards the Supreme Court to revive the Hudaibiya Paper Mills body of evidence against previous leader Nawaz Sharif, Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif and Finance Minister Ishaq Dar. The national anti-graft will challenge the Lahore High Court’s decision that had shut down the case in 2004.

Prior on Thursday, a NAB representative had stated, the department will approach the apex court today looking for an insistence to revive the Hudaibiya Paper Mills case. In 2014, the LHC had suppressed the body of evidence against Nawaz Sharif, Shahbaz Sharif, Ishaq Dar and different individuals from the Sharif family.

Awami Muslim League (AML) Chairman Sheik Rasheed Ahmed had also documented a file of petition in the apex court against NAB for neglecting to record an interest to re-open the case.

He submitted in the petition of that, ‘NAB chairman had guaranteed the best court on July 21 to record an interest inside seven days, and it put forth his expression part of its request, however he has neglected to do as such in disobedience of his affirmation.’

Recently, he stated, he sent a notice to the chairman to consent to court arrange in such manner, however he neglected to react.

Rasheed said that the JIT constituted by the Supreme Court to examine Sharif family’s seaward properties found that the Hudaibiya Papers Mills case justified further examination and blamed expelled leader Nawaz Sharif and Finance Minister Ishaq Dar of turning dark cash to white and illegal tax avoidance.

Rasheed said the JIT created substantiating confirmations against Sharif family as to illegal tax avoidance, which they didn’t deny. All things considered, NAB was stalling to look for court’s authorization to revive the case, he included.

He guaranteed that the NAB chairman and its prosecutor general were under impact of capable political elites, and asked for the court to start hatred of court procedures against them for resisting the court arrange.
