IHC upholds Babar Awan’s acquittal



The Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Tuesday upheld acquittal of Adviser to the Prime Minister on Parliamentary Affairs Babar Awan and Justice (Retd) Riaz Kiani in the Nandipur power plant corruption reference.
A two-judge bench, headed by Chief Justice Athar Minallah, dismissed the NAB appeals challenging an accountability court’s June 25, 2019 verdict of acquitting them in the case.
The bench set aside the trial court’s verdict that dismissed an acquittal plea of former law secretary Masood Chishti, who is named as accused in the case, and exonerated him from all charges.—INP
