Nawaz Sharif moves Supreme Court against rejection of bail plea
An Islamabad High Court bench comprising Justice Aamer Farooq and Justice Mohsin Akhtar Kayani had dismissed Sharif's bail plea on February 25 in Al-Azizia reference.

"In Nawaz Sharif’s case unusual circumstances could not be proved and in the light of the Supreme Court’s recent verdicts, the court could not grant him release on bail," the judges noted in a 9-page verdict.
