ISLAMABAD - Some three corruption references and almost half a dozen inquiries were pending with National Accountability Bureau and accountability courts against former premier and President Pakistan Muslim League (Nawaz), Mian Mohammad Nawaz Shairf, and his other family members. The division bench of Lahore High Court, Rawalpindi Bench, an appellate forum of accountability courts, barred the accountability courts to proceed against Mian Nawaz Sharif and other family members in these three cases and directed them to present all the record in these cases before the court within two weeks. All the three cases - Hudaybia Paper Mills, Ittifaq Foundries and Assets reference - were framed against Nawaz Sharif and his family members after dislodging of his elected government in 1999 and year 2000 and mainly all these three cases fixed for trial Accountability Court Attock where Nawaz and his brother Mian Shahbaz Sharif were detained. All these cases were adjourned sine die when under some clandestine deal Mian Nawaz Sharif and his family members were exiled to Saudi Arabia. These cases were reopened in year 2007 when the Supreme Court of Pakistan allowed Nawaz to return back to Pakistan but once again he was sent back to Saudi Arabia, moments after he landed here at Islamabad airport. The request for the reopening of these cases was again made in year 2010 when the then Prosecutor General NAB Dr Danishwar Malik had moved an application seeking reopening of these cases on the plea that as the accused in these cases had returned back to the country so the cases against them should be reopened. But the matter once again went into limbo when the Accountability Court Rawalpindi No. 1 judge directed the Prosecutor General to furnish the request for reopening of these cased duly signed by Chairman NAB but as the slot of Chairman NAB was vacant and once again the court had adjourned these cases sine die.
