A three-judge SC bench comprising Justice Mushir Alam, Justice Qazi Faez Isa and Justice Mazhar Alam Khan Miankhel had rejected the NAB appeal on Jan 5 against the quashment of the Rs1.2 billion Hudaibya corruption reference by the Lahore High Court in 2014. The same bench heard the review petition today.

 

After the NAB prosecutor failed to satisfy the bench with arguments against the earlier judgement, the SC today rejected the review petition filed by the bureau.
