ISLAMABAD: Awami Muslim League chief Sheikh Rashid Ahmed, on Monday, moved an application in the Supreme Court, requesting it to direct NAB to file an appeal against Lahore High Court's three-year-old order to quash a reference against the Sharifs in Hudaibiya Paper Mills case.

Rashid, a petitioner in the Panamagate case filed a Civil Miscellaneous Application (CMA) requesting that the judge responsible for supervising NAB proceedings, should direct the bureau to file an appeal to reopen the Rs1.2 billion Hudaibiya scam against the Sharif family.
