Court seeks more arguments in Nawaz Sharif properties’ auction case
June 3, 2022 12:16 PM
An accountability court (AC) in Lahore on Friday directed the counsels representing parties to the former prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s properties’ auction case to give more arguments on the next date of the hearing, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.
During the hearing of the petition, seeking a stay order from the court against the auction of properties belonging to the former prime minister, who is also Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) supremo, the judge remarked since one of the judges was on leave; therefore the petition could not be heard today.
Qazi Misbah Advocate had filed the petition, seeking ‘stay’ in the case, while seven parties had challenged the court order of the auction of Nawaz’s properties in the AC.
The petitioner had argued that the court’s decision would be challenged once the former prime minister returned to Pakistan. “Therefore, it would be better if the auction of his properties is put on hold for the time being,” he had said, and prayed to the court to grant ‘stay’ in the case.
Later, the court adjourned hearing of the case until July 1, 2022.
