A top court in Pakistan on Monday indefinitely postponed the hearing of a petition filed by jailed former premier Nawaz Sharif seeking suspension of his sentence in the Al-Azizia Steel Mills case.

The Accountability Court II Judge Arshad Malik on 24th of last month sentenced 69-year-old Sharif to seven years in prison along with a fine in the Al-Azizia corruption case.

The three-time former premier is serving his term in Lahore’s Kot Lakhpat Jail.

Sharif filed an appeal against his conviction in the Islamabad High Court (IHC) and a petition to suspend sentence until adjudication on appeal.
