Islamabad’s accountability court has reserved its judgment on an appeal filed by former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif seeking the suspension of his arrest warrants in the Toshakhana case.
During the hearing, Sharif’s lawyer, Qazi Misbah, and the NAB prosecutor were present. Misbah appealed to the court to cancel the arrest warrant issued for his client.
After hearing the arguments, Judge Muhammad Bashir reserved the ruling.
A day earlier, Sharif’s lawyers had filed an appeal praying to the court to suspend Sharif’s perpetual arrest warrants in the Toshakhana case until October 24.
The two-judge IHC bench had issued notices to the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on two petitions filed by PML-N leader Nawaz Sharif seeking protective bail in the Avenfield and Al-Azizia cases. Sharif was convicted in the Avenfield and Al-Azizia references and declared a proclaimed offender in the Toshakhana vehicle case pending with an accountability court in Islamabad.
The court has adjourned the case until Thursday.
