Pakistan SC gives anti-graft court two more months to wrap up graft cases against Sharifs


Pakistan's Supreme Court today extended by two months the deadline given to the anti-corruption court to complete hearing of graft cases against ousted Premier Nawaz Sharif and his family in the Panama Papers scandal. 

In its July 28th last year ruling in the Panama Papers case, the apex court had given the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) six months to complete its proceedings on the corruption cases against members of the Sharif family. 

Acting on the apex court's order, NAB had initially filed four cases against the Sharifs and former Finance Minister Ishaq Dar. Three cases were registered on September 8th against Sharif and his family and one case against Dar. 

The Supreme Court today granted three-month extension to the trial court to conclude the corruption case against Dar. 

The trial of the accused started on September 14th last year and the deadline is expiring on the 13th of this month. But it had become clear that the Accountability Court in Islamabad would not be able to wrap up the proceedings on time. 

The NAB prosecutor general approached a three-member bench of Supreme Court with the plea to extend the deadline.
