    NAB to challenge IHC's verdict about Sharifs' sentences in SC

    NAB will challenge IHC’s judgement after receiving attested copies of court verdict
    ISLAMABAD (Dunya News) – The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on Wednesday decided to challenge Islamabad High Court (IHC) verdict of suspending sentences of ex-prime minister Nawaz Sharif, his daughter Maryam Nawaz and son-in-law Captain (r) Safdar in Avenfield reference, in the Supreme Court.

    The decision has been taken in a meeting presided over by anti-graft watchdog chairman Justice (r) Javed Iqbal.

    The anti-graft agency will challenge IHC’s judgement after receiving attested copies of court verdict.

    Earlier, IHC had suspended sentences of ex-prime minister Nawaz Sharif, his daughter Maryam Nawaz and son-in-law Captain (r) Safdar in Avenfield reference.

    Justice Athar Minallah, while announcing the verdict, directed to release Nawaz Sharif, Maryam Nawaz and Captain (r) Safdar over surety bonds worth Rs0.5 million each until final decision on their pleas.

    During the hearing, National Accountability Bureau (NAB) prosecutor had said that no evidence regarding transfer of 12 million dirham has been found while the agreement of selling 25 percent shares of Gulf Steel Mills was also fake.

    United Arab Emirates (UAE) authorities have also not verified the transfer of the money, he added.

    Responding to the question, NAB prosecutor said the accused adopted the stance in Supreme Court (SC) that they bought London flats by selling Gulf Steel Mills. He said Maryam Nawaz had told the Panama Joint Investigation Team (JIT) that she is her father’s dependent.

    Previously, the bench inquired why Maryam Nawaz had been convicted under Section-9A of the NAB’s ordinance if assets were owned by Nawaz Sharif. The bench further asked how two individuals can be convicted on assets owned by a single person.

    “How Nawaz Sharif can own property when the ownership of the same rests with his children? Does court announce verdict merely on basis of this myth?”, remarked Justice Athar Minallah.

    NAB’s prosecutor argued law turns onus of proof on accused after ownership of flats [by Sharifs] has been established. He said, “The agreement of money transfer turned out to be fake. Likewise, the deed declaring Maryam Nawaz trustee was also proved fake. She possesses assets beyond her declared source of income”.

    NAB prosecutor further added Sharifs had not registered ‘Calibri font’ trust deed in UK. He said, “Maryam Nawaz crafted this trust deed and declared his brother beneficial owner”.

    Convicted and sentenced

    It is to be mentioned here that former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, Maryam Nawaz and Captain Safdar were convicted and sentenced to prison in absentia for ten years, seven years and one year respectively, in Avenfield verdict.

    Maryam Nawaz and Captain (r) Safdar, who were candidates for the general elections 2018, were also disqualified from contesting elections for 10 years each.

    The sentence and a fine of 8 million pounds, or $10.6 million, came almost a year after Supreme Court removed Sharif from office and less than five months after the court barred him from holding office for life.

    Nawaz Sharif was convicted under section 9(a)(5) of the NAB ordinance.

    The case stemmed from the Panama Papers leak that disclosed expensive and undeclared property owned by the Sharif family in London.

    Arrested and shifted to Adiala Jail

    Safdar was arrested by the NAB authorities in Rawalpindi on July 9 while Nawaz Sharif and Maryam were taken into custody by the officials few minutes after their flight landed at Lahore’s Allama Iqbal International Airport on Friday night and shifted to Adiala Jail.

    Accountability Court Judge Muhammad Bashir, who was present at the jail primises, issued warrants for imprisonment for Nawaz Sharif and Maryam Nawaz. A team of doctors conducted the medical checkup of both the accused and declared them fit.

    Nawaz Sharif and Maryam Nawaz were then shifted to B-Class facility in Adiala Jail.

    This judge Athar-Minimal's bank accounts should be checked. Also check if he is a dual national or not.
    However, I'm sure this verdict will be overturned by the SC and they will again go to the jail and their names are still in ECL.

    There is no proof against Nawaz. Wonder if Fouj will ask SC to guilty Nawaz and hang him because he had guts to go against India

    Looks like Sherif Bey has some powerful friends....

    Gaining Iktidar is one thing, becoming Muktedir is a completely different ball game!!! Even after revolutions, tens of millions of necks lose their heads!!!! As for Reis Erdo'an, it took ~15 years after surviving tens of assassination attempts, Kabalah-class Sihrs, flying at a roof-top trajectory along with entire family while fleeing from SEALs with 7K bullets, dodging A-to-A missiles from F-16s under NATO trained pilots, Ihanets in all sorts and forms, taming the military of WH/Pentagon/NATO's "Our Boys", eradicating Zionist media, coup attempts from military/judiciary etc., and not to mention the constant warfare via FETO/PKK/NYC-London-Bankers etc. (all under CIA/MOSAD/MI-6 etc.).....

    Ey Millet-i Pak, the key is to never fall off the Mujaddele done with Sabr and Shukr...

    In fact, I have been thinking on this line that now patwaris will start singing how free and independent the judiciary is but as Dr SM says "they eat rasgulas (Pakistani sweet) one day and Piaz (onions) the other" so as soon as the SC will nullify this verdict, they will start crying again but then they won't be able to blame the SC is not independent. So basically if the court decides in their favour, it is independent and good but if it gives verdict against them, they start crying against it.

    BTW, I feel they are not very excited with this verdict...perhaps they know it is nothing but an intermission in the movie..

    NAB doesn't have any case. This is why they wanted to make a deal with Nawaz in return of no jail. This farce will expose SC.
