The Supreme Court on Monday directed the Accountability Court to complete the hearing of Al-Azizia and Flagship references within six weeks. A three-member bench headed by the Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Mian Saqib Nisar denied request by Justice Mohammad Arshad Malik of the Accountability Court (AC) to extend the trial for the fifth time. The deadline for the conclusion of proceedings in the graft references expired last week.
