IHC reserves verdict on Sharifs petition seeking suspension of Avenfield reference conviction
ISLAMABAD - The Islamabad High Court(IHC) has reserved the verdict on a slew of pleas filed by former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, his daughter Maryam Nawaz and son-in-law Captain (retd) Safdar seeking suspension of the verdict in the Avenfield properties reference.
A two-member IHC bench comprising Justice Athar Minallah and Justice Miangul Hassan Aurangzeb concluded hearing of Nawaz's petition on Monday and NAB's Deputy Prosecutor Sardar Muzaffar Abbasi completed his arguments.
Justice Minallah said that the verdict will be announced at an appropriate time, adding that “We will issue a reasonable order.”
The Sharifs had challenged their convictions in the IHC, highlighting the legal flaws in the Avenfield case judgment, asking for the accountability court's verdict to be declared null and void, and the three convicts be released on bail.
