LAHORE- A Division Bench of the Lahore High Court Monday adjourned for two weeks further hearing of seven appeals filed by Sharif family against the attachment of their properties and shares by NAB, after the respondent prayed to the court for referring hearing of the matter to a larger Bench in view of its importance and sensitivity after punishment by accountability courts in 2001. Counsel for the Sharifs, Shahid Hamid advocate opposed the request made by National Accountability Bureau (NAB) contending in case the appeals are referred to the chief justice with a request to place it before a larger bench, the decision on the same would be further delayed for the new Bench may need to hear the matter afresh. He alleged that the plea made by NAB aimed at delaying hearing of the appeals. The Bench comprising Justice Ijaz ul Ahsan and Justice Tahir Javed, however put off further hearing of for two weeks without mentioning further dates for hearing. Earlier, NAB presented all the seized shares and property documents of companies of the Sharif family before the Lahore High Court after showing reluctance for many days and the LHC had seized the record in the presence of representative of Sharif family. In appeal petitions Sharif Family submits that the NAB was not releasing their properties which it had seized in 2001 to recover fine imposed on PML-N Chief Mian Muhammad Nawaz Sharif by an accountability court and an anti terrorism court in plane hijacking and purchase of a Russian helicopter cases. The appeals were filed by Mian Shahbaz Sharif, Sabina Abbas, daughter of Mian Abbas for recovery of papers of Hudabiya Paper Mills, Hudabiya Engineering Services, Chaudhry Sugar Mills, Ramzan Sugar Mills and Hamza Spinning Mills and the said companies shares from custody of NAB. In the appeals the Sharif family submitted that the conviction was set aside by Supreme Court on Oct 30, 2000 but despite repeated applications, the NAB was not releasing their seized properties; rather it resorted to coercive measures against them.
