ISLAMABAD: 

Awami Muslim League chief Sheikh Rashid Ahmed, on Monday, moved an application in the Supreme Court, requesting it to direct NAB to file an appeal against Lahore High Court’s three-year-old order to quash a reference against the Sharifs in Hudaibiya Paper Mills case.

Rashid, a petitioner in the Panamagate case filed a Civil Miscellaneous Application (CMA) requesting that the judge responsible for supervising NAB proceedings, should direct the bureau to file an appeal to reopen the Rs1.2 billion Hudaibiya scam against the Sharif family.

The applicant contended that despite giving an undertaking to file the appeal against LHC’s order within seven days, NAB did not challenge the three-year-0ld LHC order.

Further, Rashid requested the apex court to initiate contempt proceedings against NAB Chairman Qamar Zaman Chaudhry and prosecutor general NAB, regarding their failure to file an appeal against the high court’s order as per undertaken by Additional PG Akbar Tarar before the three-judge bench headed by Justice Ejaz Afzal Khan.
