In a major development in Al Azizia and Avenfield references, a newspaper advertisement for summoning former prime minister Nawaz Sharif has been published in an English daily on Monday. The copy of the advertisement published in an English daily has been presented before the Islamabad High Court (IHC).
The PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif has been directed to appear before the Islamabad High Court on November 24.
The advertisement states that Nawaz Sharif was sentenced on July 6, 2018, to 10 years imprisonment and a fine of 8 million pounds, and former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif was disqualified from contesting in the elections.
The advertisement said that when Nawaz Sharif’s sentence was suspended on September 19, 2018, he was released on bail from jail. An appeal is pending in the Avenfield reference and Nawaz Sharif was required to appear in court. The court had also issued his non-bailable arrest warrants.
