Nawaz’s plea for suspension of sentence rejected by IHC

Nawaz had approached IHC for suspension of his sentence in Al-Azizia Steel Mills reference on medical grounds. A two-member bench comprising Justice Mohsin Akhtar Kiyani and Justice Amir Farooq has rejected the plea. Nawaz’s counsel, Khawaja Haris, told court there was 60 per cent risk to Nawaz’s life and said his best treatment was only available abroad.

National Accountability Bureau (NAB) prosecutor, Jahanzeb Bharwana, opposed the request and urged the court to dismiss the plea.
