Nawaz Sharif has challenged the verdict of accountability court regarding clubbing all three references into one in Islamabad High Court (IHC) today. 

The lawyer of Sharif, Azam Tarar, filed the application pleading from IHC to reject verdict of accountability court .

The NAB court did not looked into proposals given by Islamabad High Court earlier and took decision in haste hence it should be dismissed, the application argued. 

On November 8, the accountability court rejected Nawaz Sharif's plea of clubbing all three references into one.  

The plea was filed by Nawaz Sharif and his sons, Hassan and Hussain Nawaz . 

Earlier, court reserved judgment on former prime minister plea seeking clubbing of all the three corruption references against him, after hearing arguments from both defence and prosecution counsels.

Although on previous date of hearing, Accountability Court Judge Mohammad Bashir exempted Nawaz Sharif and other accused, Maryam Nawaz and Capt (retd) Safdar, for Tuesday as the court was to take up the issue of clubbing of the references issue but Nawaz Sharif, his daughter Maryam Nawaz and son-in-law Capt Safdar appeared before the court and spent well over couple of hours hearing his counsel giving arguments in support of clubbing the three references .

Judge Muhammad Bashir took up the Nawaz Sharif’s plea seeking clubbing together of all three references , including Avenfield property, Flagship Investment and Azizia Steel Mills in light of Islamabad High Court (IHC) judgment to re-hear the case.
