Court to hear appeals against Avenfield verdict

News by:

A two-member bench, comprising Justice Mohsin Akhtar Kayani and Justice Miangul Hassan Aurangzeb, will hear the appeals.
An accountability court awarded 11 years to former PM Nawaz Sharif, eight years to his daughter Maryam Nawaz Sharif, and one year to his son-in-law Captain (retd) Safdar. All three are currently in jail. Their lawyers obtained the signatures of their clients on Sunday and filed the appeals on Monday.
On the other hand, accountability court judge Muhammad Bashir has recused himself from hearing the other two corruption references against the former PM and his children.
