Chief Justice of Pakistan Saqib Nisar has appointed Supreme Court’s Justice Ijazul Ahsan to oversee the cases filed against Sharif Family by the National Accountability Bureau. The NAB court also has been directed to file a reference against Finance Minister Ishaq Dar .
A notification issued on August 1 states that Chief Justice of Pakistan Saqib Nisar has nominated Justice Ijazul Ahsan as the monitoring judge to supervise and monitor implementation of the Supreme Court’s last week’s Panama Papers case judgement and oversee proceedings conducted by NAB and the accountability court.
However since Justice Ahsan is out of the country , the notification said that Justice Ijaz Afzal Khan will oversee the monitoring till Justice Ahsan returns.
Justice Ahsan, who has formerly served as the chief justice of the Lahore High Court, was elevated to the Supreme Court in June 2016.
In line with the top court’s verdict, the executive board of NAB convened on Monday and decided to file these references in the accountability courts of Rawalpindi and Islamabad within six weeks from July 28.
