PML-N Quaid and former three-time prime minister Nawaz Sharif on Saturday visited Hudabiya Papers Mills, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

Nawaz Sharif inspected the various parts of the mills, which has been lying shut for a very long time, for 50 minutes.

In December 2017, the Supreme Court had dismissed the National Accountability Bureau’s (NAB) appeal to reopen Hudabiya Paper Mills case by declaring it not maintainable.
The apex court’s three-judge bench comprising Justice Mushir Alam, Justice Qazi Faez Isa and Justice Mazhar Alam Khan Miankhel had rejected NAB’s appeal against the order of a divisional bench of the Lahore High Court (LHC), which in 2014 had quashed the graft reference.

Some 23 years ago, the NAB had claimed that Nawaz Sharif, the then prime minister, and his family had received more than Rs1 billion ‘through illegal and fraudulent means’ and that they were liable to be tried under anti-corruption laws in relation to the Hudabiya Papers Mills.
In 2014, the LHC had quashed the reference concerning Hudabiya Papers Mills against the Sharif family, and the anti-graft watchdog did not challenge the LHC’s order at that time.

According to NAB documents, Sharif, his daughter Maryam Nawaz, his father Mian Sharif, brothers Shehbaz and Abbas Sharif, Abbas’s wife Sabiha, Sharif’s son Hussain and Shehbaz’s son Hamza had been accused of receiving the alleged ‘ill-gotten money’ in the case.
