Islamabad High Court (IHC) has set October 29 for hearing incarcerated ex-premier Nawaz Sharif appeal against the Al-Azizya Reference. As per the details, IHC has issued a cause list according to which a division bench consisting up of Justice Amir Farooq and Justice Mohsin Akhtar Kiyani will hear the case.
Besides that NAB’s appeal regarding increasing the punishment to Nawaz Sharif will also be heard on October 29 while the court has issued a notice to the anti-graft body on a plea of Nawaz Sharif in the Judge video case. Earlier this month, Nawaz Sharif challenged the Supreme Court’s decision in the case regarding a secretly filmed video of former accountability court judge Arshad Malik, who convicted the Pakistan Mulsim League – Nawaz (PML-N) supremo in the Al-Azizia corruption reference.
In August, a three-judge bench headed by Chief Justice of Pakistan Asif Saeed Khosa disposed of a set of identical petitions in the video case and ruled that the clip could only become evidence if its authenticity was established.
