ISLAMABAD (92 News) – The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has filed a review petition in the Supreme Court on Hudabiya Paper Mills’ case judgment.

A 40-page review petition has been drafted by NAB special prosecutor Imranul Haq in this regard.

A two member bench headed by Justice Mushir Alam had earlier rejected NAB’s plea seeking reopening of the case.

In its detailed judgment, the bench concluded that the respondents in the case were denied the due process.

The bench had asked the bureau not to ‘parrot’ the Panama Papers judgment but articulate its own reasons to convince the bench why the reference originally filed against the Sharifs in the year 2000 should be resurrected. “You have to satisfy the court on the reasons for the delay in filing the appeal,” Justice Alam had told NAB’s lawyer as the hearing began.
