ISLAMABAD: Former prime min­is­ter Nawaz Sharif on Tues­day chal­lenged the ac­count­abil­ity court’s or­ders on his plea seek­ing to club to­gether three cor­rup­tion ref­er­ences filed against him by the Na­tional Ac­count­abil­ity Bu­reau (NAB).

Azam Tarar, coun­sel for Sharif, sub­mit­ted an ap­pli­ca­tion in the Islamabad High Court and prayed that the ac­count­abil­ity court’s de­ci­sion be de­clared null and void as it was given in haste with­out tak­ing into con­sid­er­a­tion the Islamabad High Court’s de­tailed ver­dict on his client's plea.

The lawyer re­quested the court to fix the ap­pli­ca­tion for hear­ing to­day.

The ac­count­abil­ity court last week re­jected ousted prime min­is­ter Nawaz Sharif's plea seek­ing to club to­gether three cor­rup­tion ref­er­ences filed against him by NAB in the light of Supreme Court ver­dict in Panama Pa­pers case.
