Islamabad High Court to hear Avenfield case at the end of July

July 20, 2018

The Islamabad High Court will hear the Avenfield case in the last week of July.

Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, his daughter Maryam Nawaz and son-in-law Captain (retd) Safdar have appealed their punishments in the case. They were awarded 10, seven and one year respectively by an accountability court.

The Islamabad High Court has prepared the preliminary written order in the case and accepted the appeals.

According to the order, the hearing will be set after the court holidays are over, in the last week of July.

NAB has been issued a notice to prepare counter arguments against the appeals and assign a representative to appear at the next hearing.

The court said the NAB representative should be aware of the realities of the case.

The points the Sharif’s lawyers have raised need to be discussed, said the court.
