Judiciary Strikes Again – LHC provides relief to Sharif Brothers against NAB – by Ahmed Iqbalabadi

 

"Tum loag beth kar rami khelo, meyn London chala"

The support base of Nawaz Sharif and family i.e. the judiciary has struck again, providing relief to the family against NAB.

It is all but strange that appeals against NAB in favor of Nawaz Sharif are acted upon in a hasty matter whereas PPP leaders like Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto, Asif Zardari, Yusuf Raza Gilani and others had to wait not less than 6 years to get any sort of relief.

On one hand, the Supreme Court insists on re-opening cases against the sitting head of state and that too in a foreign land while on the other hand proven and wilfull defaulters, i.e. the Sharif Brothers are given relief by the Lahore High Court.

As Vital Signs correctly said, “Main Chup Raha”. The picture on the left correctly shows the happiness of Mian Sahab.

 Sharifs’ appeal against NAB accepted

The Lahore High Court has stopped the National Accountability Bureau from taking any action against the Sharif brothers on Thursday.

LHC gave this order after appeals were filed in the court by the Sharif Brothers against Nab authorities.

The appeals state that after their exile NAB confiscated the business and property documents of the Sharif brothers, and could use the documents against them. It further says that despite the dismissal of cases against them in the Supreme Court, NAB authorities did not return the documents. They requested the court to bar NAB from taking any step until the verdict of the appeals is finalized.

The two member bench of LHC comprising of Justice Ijazul Hasan and Justice Mamun Rashid accepted the appeals for further hearing and issued notices to Nab. The Court asked for the submission of Nabs reply in two weeks.
