Al-Azizia, Flagship Investments: Verdict against Nawaz to be announced today

Islamabad, Dec 24 (UNI) An accountability court will announce its judgment on Monday in remaining corruption cases of National Accountability Bureau’s (NAB) Flagship Investments and Al-Azizia Steel Mills against ousted prime minister Nawaz Sharif.

Accountability Judge Mohammad Arshad Malik had reserved judgement in both the references on Dec 19, Dawn reported. 

Security has been beefed up around the judicial complex, with heavy contingents of police and Rangers deployed around the building and along roads leading to the court.

Although Section 144, which prohibits public gatherings of five or more people, processions, rallies in any public place within the limits of the area, has been imposed in the capital, the Islamabad and Rawalpindi administrations have decided that there will be no blockade at the entry points of the capital, and security officials will only ensure strict checking.
