A legal team of former Prime Minister of Pakistan Nawaz Sharif has obtained the full text of the accountability court’s judgment in the Al-Azizia reference against him and has been preparing to file an appeal against the verdict which sentenced him to seven years in prison on December 24th.
On the other hand, the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) officials have announced to challenge the accountability court’s verdict which acquitted Sharif in the Flagship corruption reference.
While reading out the short order, a Judge of an Accountability Court Arshad Malik said that there was no case against Nawaz in the Flagship reference. He was indicted under Section 9(a)(v) and Section 10 of the National Accountability Ordinance in the Al-Azizia reference.
However, regarding the Al-Azizia reference the court, in its verdict, pointed out ‘concrete’ evidence against the former premier as he was unable to provide a money trail in the case.
