ISLAMABAD: The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on Wednesday filed a petition in the Supreme Court against the Lahore High Court (LHC)’s judgment regarding the Hudaibiya Paper Mills case against the Sharif family and others.
The anti-graft body, in its petition, has pleaded the apex court to revoke the LHC’s judgment in the case.
Punjab Chief Minister Mian Muhammad Shehbaz Sharif and his son Hamza Shehbaz Sharif were also made parties in the petition as the anti-corruption watchdog claimed to find fresh evidences against the duo.
The Securities and Exchange Commission of Pakistan (SECP) had submitted the entire record of the Hudaibiya Paper Mills to the Joint Investigation Team (JIT) probing the Panama case.
Earlier, Awami Muslim League chief Sheikh Rasheed had submitted a petition in the Supreme Court against NAB’s failure to reopen the Hudaibiya Paper Mill case.
The petition stated that on July 21, during the hearing of the Panama Papers case, NAB had informed the apex court it would reply in seven days regarding the reopening of the Hudaibiya case.
