SC adjourns Hudaibiya case hearing till Friday due to unavailability of judge

ISLAMABAD: The unavailability of a Supreme Court judge on Wednesday resulted in the adjournment of the Hudaibiya Papers Mills case to Friday.

The Rs1.2 billion Hudaibiya Paper Mills case, involving money laundering charges against the Sharif family, was initiated by NAB in 2000 but quashed by the Lahore High Court (LHC) in 2014. The NAB has now appealed the LHC decision in the Supreme Court. 

The three-member SC bench, headed by Justice Mushir Alam and comprising justices Qazi Faez Isa and Mazhar Alam Miankhel, had to resume hearing the NAB appeal against the Sharif family today (Wednesday).

However, the hearing was adjourned till Friday due to the unavailability of Justice Mazhar Alam Miankhel.

During Tuesday’s proceedings, Justice Isa asked the NAB prosecutor about the charges against the suspects in the case.
