Supreme Court will hear the petition by Judge Mohammad Bashir for extension in NAB references today.
However, he asked the apex for the extension in references against former PM Nawaz Sharif and his family. CJP Saqib Nisar and Justice Ijaz ul Ahsan will hear the extension petition today.
Yesterday, the Accountability Court resumed the hearing of Al Azizia reference against Nawaz Sharif. During the hearing, Khawaja Haris, Nawaz’s counsel, raised his objection over the hearing of remaining references against the former PM. He said that the hearing is not fair as court already given the verdict in Avenfield reference.
However, Judge Mohammad Bashir said that the last deadline (10 July) to resolve the cases is near. The court further elaborated that a petition should be filed in apex court about the extension in NAB references.
Khawaja Haris said that the court cannot hear the remaining cases as it already announced the verdict in one case. He further added that Nawaz Sharif and Maryam Nawaz are returning Pakistan on July 13 (Friday).
