Infostani Sources- The Islamabad High Court acquitted Nawaz Sharif, a leader of the Muslim League (N) and former Prime Minister, in the Al-Azizia reference. Chief Justice Amir Farooq of the Islamabad High Court stated that Wajid Zia, a witness, asserted the lack of proof of ownership. The NAB document showed no evidence, and no punishment can be imposed on mere assumptions. After hearing the decision, Nawaz Sharif thanked Allah. On Tuesday, a two-member bench, consisting of Chief Justice Aamir Farooq and Justices Mian Gul Hassan and Nagzeeb, heard Nawaz Sharif’s appeal against the sentence in the Al-Azizia reference. Former Wiz Mera Alam appeared with his legal team.
Amjad Pervez, Nawaz Sharif’s lawyer, initiated the argument, stating that he did not want to discuss the sponsorship issue. Chief Justice Amir Farooq asked if NAB provided any proof regarding the sponsorship of the emailer. Seb Vakil, beginning his arguments, stated that the Accountability Court filed references following the Supreme Court’s instructions. Baj Muhammad Bashir of Attribution Court No.1 filed the charge sheet in this case. Reading the charge sheet, NAB prosecutor Shib Vakil said that the evidence collected, including statements of 116 individuals, is part of the record.
Amjad Pervez, the advocate, argued that the accountability court relied on Hussain Nawaz’s miscellaneous petition submitted to the Supreme Court, which does not prove that Nawaz Sharif is the owner of these assets. The interlocutory plea did not become part of the record. Nawaz Sharif’s speech in the National Assembly and Hussain Nawaz’s interview also served as reliance. The prosecution had to prove that Nawaz Sharif, as a public officeholder, created the assets, proving the income and value of the assets. It had to demonstrate the process of creating Benami property, assuming it was in the name of the guarantor.
Challenges to Evidence: Chief Justice Grills Prosecution in Al-Azizia Reference
If there is no evidence in this regard, it does not become a case of assets over income. Chief Justice Amir Farooq stated serious charges against Al-Azizia Yeh and Bill Mittal, asking when and how Al-Azizia faced charges. You were the prosecutor, what evidence did you have? Tell me on what basis you transferred the evidence to the accused. You must assert that Nawaz Sharif sent this money to Saudi Arabia through corruption.
In Al-Azizia, tell me first the amount of money sent and when the factory started. What is the evidence that you are linking them to the case? Will there be any documents, evidence on record, or witnesses to determine the value of the properties? The lab prosecutor said that Nawaz Sharif’s sons did not have enough resources to set up mills.
JIT chief Wajid Zia analyzed based on various Daco minutes that Nawaz Sharif is the real owner, our twenty is based on the analysis of Wajid Zia. Chief Justice Amir Farooq stated that this date minute proves nothing, and Wajid Zia needs to show us the documents on which he based his conclusion. Wajid Zia asserted that there is no evidence to support ownership, emphasizing that no punishment can be imposed on mere assumptions.
The court said that you should tell us what are the evidence with which you are linking them to the case, will there be any documents related to the value of the properties? Chief Justice Amir Farooq said that he had raised the issue of Naj’s bias on the shell hearing.
High Court Rejects NAB’s Pleas in Nawaz Sharif’s Acquittal Case
Justice Mian Gul Hasan and Nigzeb said, “Before delving into the evidence, I would like to raise one more point. You requested to quash and remand the judgment to the trial court. We have not issued any order yet; you have appealed this appeal. But by giving arguments on merit, the punishment can be dismissed. The NAB prosecutor said that Al-Aziz had requested the accountability court to take this return again, after the termination of Hajj, this decision should not be relied upon. This decision cannot be said to be correct after the side of the seed.
Chief Justice Aamir Farooq remarked that we had not issued any order on the previous hearing on the application related to Arshad Malik. You said that you do not want further action on this application. NAB is right that the Supreme Court In the Arshad Malik case decision. The anchors are quite strong, and even if there was no request. Even if that decision came before us, we would have kept it in mind.
Justice Mian Gul Hasan and Nagzeb informed Nawaz Sharif’s lawyer that NAB was giving a significant discount. I don’t know why you are not accepting it.
