Hudaibiya Mills case: NAB files review petition against SC decision

F.P. Report

ISLAMABAD: The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) filed a review petition against the Supreme Court’s decision regarding dismissing the Hudaibia case appeal on December 15 last year.

The apex court had dismissed NAB’s appeal to reopen the Hudaibiya Paper Mills case against the members of Sharif family.

The NAB filed review petition and it stated that the apex court ruled out its appeal in three days and adding that a reinvestigation of Hudaibia case cannot be stopped.

The petition also stated that the Supreme Court overlooked several materials provided by NAB.

The Rs1.2 billion Hudaibiya Paper Mills case, involving money laundering charges against the Sharif family, was initiated by NAB in 2000 but quashed by the Lahore High Court (LHC) in 2014. The NAB had appealed the LHC decision in the Supreme Court.

The three-member bench of apex court, headed by Justice Mushir Alam and comprising Justices Qazi Faez Isa and Mazhar Alam Miankhel dismissed the appeal last year issued a detailed verdict this year.
