A judge has recused himself from hearing the appeal filed in the Lahore High Court against former premier Nawaz Sharif, his daughter Maryam Nawaz and son-in-law Captain (retired) Safdar’s convictions.

A private citizen, AK Dogar, has filed a petition challenging their convictions in the Avenfield reference. Nawaz was sentenced to 10 years in prison, Maryam to seven and Safdar to one.

The petition said that the NAB law was no longer in effect and therefore the trial against Nawaz was illegal.

Justice Shams Mehmood Mirza, one of the members of the three-judge full bench, has recused himself from hearing the case on the basis that he has heard cases regarding the NAB law before.

The other members of the bench are Justice Muhammad Sajid Mehmood Siddiqui and Justice Mujahid Mustaqeem Ahmed.
