Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif appeared before the Islamabad High Court (IHC) in cases related to Avenfield and Al-Azizia. Before returning to Pakistan, he was granted bail by the IHC until October 24 in these cases. Nawaz had arrived in Islamabad from Dubai on a charter plane, ending his four-year self-imposed exile. In 2018, he was sentenced to prison in the Avenfield and Al-Azizia cases. The IHC had declared him a proclaimed offender for not complying with the court’s orders while he was in London for medical treatment. Nawaz approached the IHC, seeking restoration of his appeals against the accountability court’s verdicts. He filed petitions requesting a hearing on the appeals that were initially discarded due to his non-compliance. In another case, Nawaz appeared before an accountability court for the Toshakhana case. The court granted him bail in this case against surety bonds of Rs1 million and adjourned the hearing until November 20. Last week, the court suspended his arrest warrant in the Toshakhana case, stating that it would be restored if he failed to appear on October 24. The case involves allegations of acquiring luxury vehicles and gifts through Toshakhana in violation of rules and regulations.
