ISLAMABAD: Ousted premier Nawaz Sharif, his daughter Maryam Nawaz and son-in-law Capt (retd.) Safdar are likely to challenge the Avenfield reference verdict in Islamabad High Court (IHC) today (Tuesday).
According to details, Khawaja Harris has prepared appeals against the accountability court’s decision. All the three accused have signed the affidavits and completed consultation with their lawyers.
They are now awaiting green signal from the Sharif family to file the appeals in IHC. Their lawyers have said that Nawaz and Maryam will face difficulty in receiving relief if did not return to Pakistan in 10 days.
Moreover, the copies of Avenfield reference have been provided to the three accused.
Yesterday, Capt (retd) Safdar was shifted to Adiala Jail for one year after brief appearance in accountability court. The convict was taken to the jail amid tight security.
Captain (r) Safdar on Sunday had surrendered after which National Accountability Bureau (NAB) team arrested him from Liaquat Bagh.
Safdar’s name was also placed on the black list, which means he would be barred from leaving the country.
