Islamabad: On December 24, the accountability court covered two important cases against Nawaz Sharif and sentenced him to seven years in jail in Al-Azizia reference. In the other Flagship Investment reference, he had been acquitted.
But, on Wednesday, NAB challenges the Al-Azizia and Flagship reference judgments in the Islamabad High Court.
According to NAB, they provided sufficient evidence against the former Prime Minister in the Flagship reference and the decision of acquitting him in this case is a poor decision.
The appeals are filed against the decisions and NAB requested the Islamabad High Court to declare the decision as null and void in the Flagship reference.
The accountability watchdog also challenged the Al-Azizia corruption reference verdict and stated that seven-year prison is not sufficient and it should be increased.
According to the watchdog, he must be sentenced to 14-years in jail and this is the right punishment.
On the other hand, Khawaja Haris who Nawaz Sharif chose to represent him in these high-profile corruption cases filed an appeal against the decision in Al-Azizia reference a day earlier in IHC. He requested the High Court to release Nawaz Sharif on bail and declare the decision as null and void.
