LHC grants pre-arrest bail to Shehbaz Sharif in assets beyond means case

Lahore (Staff Report/Agencies): The Lahore High Court (LHC) on Wednesday granted interim bail to Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) President Shehbaz Sharif till June 17.


On Tuesday, the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) team accompanied by heavy contingent of police reached at the leader of the opposition in the National Assembly’s residence in Model Town after he failed to appear before the anti-corruption watchdog in money laundering and assets beyond means case.

Several PML-N workers also reached the PML-N president's residence to protest against the NAB.

The NAB summoned the PML-N president to record his statement in assets beyond means and money laundering cases.

However, the PML-N president skipped his appearance before the country’s top graft buster, saying he is 69 years old and a cancer patient; therefore, the NAB's investigative team could question him via Skype.
