The Supreme Court of Pakistan will hear the appeal of National Accountability Bureau (NAB) against the suspension of jail term of Nawaz Sharif and his family in the Avenfield case on Wednesday (today).
Supreme Court will hear NAB appeal against Sharifs jail term suspension in Avenfield reference. Earlier, NAB challenged suspension of Sharifs jail term in Avenfield Reference by IHC. However, NAB appealed through special prosecutor Akram Qureshi and contended that IHC had failed to appreciate that through its order.
In addition, NAB requested the apex court to set aside the IHC order and recall the relief of suspending the sentence and the grant of bail to Sharif family.
In September, IHC suspended the jail term of former PM Nawaz Sharif, Maryam Nawaz, and Captain (retd) Safdar in the Avenfield case.
The Avenfield Reference verdict came against Nawaz Sharif and his family. The Accountability Court sentenced the imprisonment of 10, 7, and 1 year to Nawaz, Maryam, and Captain Safdar (retd) respectively. The court also fined Nawaz Sharif and Maryam 8 million and 2 million Pounds respectively. All three leaders later moved to Adiala Jail Rawalpindi.
