ISLAMABAD (92 News) – Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif has today (Tuesday) challenged the accountability court’s verdict regarding petition seeking to club three corruption references filed by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) in line with the Supreme Court directive in the Panamagate case in the Islamabad High Court (IHC).

The petition was filed by Azam Tarrar, the counsel of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif.

On November 8, the accountability court (AC) had rejected Nawaz Sharif’s petition seeking to club three corruption references filed by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) in line with the Supreme Court directive in the Panamagate case and indicted him after.

After the announcement of the judgment, Sharif was called to the rostrum and the judge read out the charges against him. The former prime minister was indicted separately in each of the three references — he pleaded “not guilty” to all the charges.
