Dismissal of Nawaz’s appeals – victory of people, PTI’s stance: Fawad

Islamabad, June 25, 2021 (PPI-OT):Minister for Information and Broadcasting, Chaudhry Fawad Hussain has termed Islamabad High Court’s decision on Nawaz Sharif’s appeals in Avenfield and Al-Azizia references a great victory for the nation. In a video message, he said the government believes that looted wealth should be returned to the people of Pakistan.

Fawad Chaudhry said it is a victory of ‘justice’ as Nawaz Sharif, who was declared an absconder, has yet to pay the fine imposed on him by the Accountability Court of Islamabad. He expressed the hope that justice would also be ensured in the case of the appeal of PML-N leader Maryam Nawaz, who is in the country.

Earlier, the Islamabad High court rejected PML-N leader Nawaz Sharif’s appeals against his convictions in the Al Azizia and Avenfield references. A division bench comprising Justice Aamir Farooq and Justice Mohsin Akhtar Kiyani, announced the reserved judgment. In its judgment, the court stated that Nawaz Sharif is a fugitive from the law hence has lost his right of audience before the court.
