In Feb, Mr Sharif requested the SCP to reject the report filed by the JIT against him in the case.

ISLAMABAD (Dunya News) – Former premier Nawaz Sharif has been summoned on June 18 by the Supreme Court of Pakistan (SCP) in a case pertaining to alleged illegal allotment of Waqf property attached to the shrine of Hazrat Baba Fariduddin Masud Ganj Shakar in Pakpattan Sharif.

In this regard, a notice has been issued by the court for fixing the hearing, according to which Mr Sharif either has to appear personally or must be represented by his defense counsel in the case.

The notice further read that the relevant documents must be submitted by the due date, and no postponement shall be given in that purpose.

It is pertinent here to mention that during the previous hearing, the court had ordered all concerned parties to submit their response on a report of the Joint Investigation Team (JIT).

In February, Mr Sharif requested the SCP to reject the report filed by the JIT against him in the case.

In January, the JIT had filed its report in which it had recommended initiation of criminal proceedings against several individuals, including the then Punjab chief minister Nawaz Sharif for withdrawing a Dec 17, 1969 notification and allotting the huge land of Auqaf around Pakpattan to Dewan Ghulam Qutab in 1986, allegedly in violation of a Lahore High Court (LHC) order.

The SC will find some way to let him off. Just look at the IHC suspension of the Avenfield verdict and how even after they (SC) took it apart- Maryam is still free.
