Islamabad (Staff Report): The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has decided to file an appeal before the Supreme Court on Friday (today) against the Lahore High Court’s (LHC) 2014 order to quash a reference against the Sharifs in the Hudaibiya Paper Mills case.

The LHC had quashed Hudaibiya Paper Mills reference in 2014 and NAB , at that time, did not challenge the decision in the apex court.

The Joint Investigation Team (JIT) which probed the Sharifs’ offshore assets had also recommended that the Supreme Court should direct NAB to reopen the Hudabiya case.

In July 2017, NAB had informed the Supreme Court that the bureau would file an appeal before it against the LHC’s decision, but the filing has been delayed for reasons unknown.
