Commenting on Supreme Court’s ruling in Hudaibiya Paper Mills reference, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Fawad Chaudhry on Friday said the decision was expected owing to National Accountability Bureau's (NAB) weak prosecution.

Talking to media outside the court building, Chaudhry said that the NAB was failed to draw the judges’ attention to Rs 1.2 billion corruption case against Sharifs. He said the three-member bench was not guided thoroughly as the prosecution failed to attach basic documents.

Expressing reservation on weak prosecution, the PTI spokesperson said his party would review the detailed judgment on NAB plea once it is released.

“PTI has ‘serious’ reservations over the NAB’s prosecution,” he added. He said the case involved plundering of public wealth and the misuse of authority by Sharifs while deploring the top court’s verdict. “If PTI gains power, the matter will be taken to its logical conclusion,” he asserted.

Earlier today, the top court dismissed the NAB’s plea seeking reopening of the Hudaibiya Paper Mills case against the Sharif family members.
