Lahore, 17th June: A High Court ruled on Nawaz Sharif’s request to stop the auction of his property.
According to reports, Islamabad High Court delivered a safe verdict on Thursday and rejected the request by former prime minister Nawaz Sharif to halt the auction of his properties in Lahore.
Chief Justice Athar Minallah and Justice Amir Farooq delivered the verdict which said that the petition was against merit.
The Islamabad High Court rejected the petition as it did not find any legal flaw in the decision of the accountability court.
Petitioners could not satisfy their interest in Nawaz Sharif’s property. Petitions filed by Mian Iqbal Barkat, Aslam Aziz and Ashraf Malik to stop the auction were rejected.
The petitioner said that confiscation of 105 acres of land in Raiwind, a house in Upper Mall Lahore, confiscation of 88 kanals of land of Sheikhupura should be declared null and void by the accountability court order.
If the decision of the Accountability Court of October 1, 2020, April and June 2021 is not declared null and void, then the petitioners will be affected.
The decision of the Accountability Court will cause irreparable loss to the petitioners. October 1, 2020, April and June 2021 quashes accountability court’s decision.
The Islamabad Accountability Court had rejected the petition based on the objections of the three petitioners.
In the Toshakhana reference, the Accountability Court has ordered the government to confiscate the land and then auction it.
