ISLAMABAD: Accountability Court of Islamabad has issued a detailed judgement in the Flagship investment reference case against former prime minister Nawaz Sharif.
Accountability court judge Arshad Malik penned the 69-page verdict.
Earlier, accountability court in its short order on December 24 acquitted former premier in the Flagship reference filed by the National Accountability Bureau.
An accountability court sentenced former prime minister Nawaz Sharif to seven-year rigorous imprisonment on December 24 after finding him guilty in Al Azizia reference and acquitted him in the Flagship reference filed by the National Accountability Court.
The Supreme Court on July 28, 2017 disqualified Sharif in the Panama Papers case and ordered NAB to file separate cases which were respectively called Avenfiled, Al Azizia and Flagship references.
Sharif and his family members have already been convicted in Avenfield case. However, the accountability court judge Muhammad Arshad Malik acquitted Sharif in the Flagship reference.
Later, the court accepted Nawaz Sharif’s plea to detain him in Lahore’s Kotlakhpat jail rather in Rawalpind’s Adiala Jail. However, the NAB authorities shifted him to Adiala from where he was moved to Lahore.
