ISLAMABAD (Dunya News) – The Islamabad High Court (IHC) will hear appeals of former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif against his sentences in the Al-Azizia and Avenfield references on Tuesday (today).

The IHC Registrar's Office a day ago issued a circular asking the Islamabad police chief to ensure adequate security arrangements.
According to the circular, the case will be heard in courtroom number one. Only those lawyers and journalists will be allowed to enter the courtroom who have been issued security passes by the Registrar's Office.
Only 30 journalists will be allowed inside the courtroom, the circular added.
The Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Thursday approved former prime minister Nawaz Sharif's petitions seeking the restoration of appeals against his conviction in the Al-Azizia and Avenfield references.
