Money laundering case: Shehbaz Sharif sent to jail on judicial remand

Lahore (Web Desk): An accountability court on Tuesday sent Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) President and Opposition Leader in the National Assembly Shehbaz Sharif to jail on judicial remand in the money laundering case.


During today’s hearing, the PML-N leader Sharif told the court that he has been in the National Accountability Bureau's (NAB) custody for 85 days and the anti-graft body had only questioned him for 15 minutes, adding that he was asked questions repeatedly for whom he had answered.

While requesting physical remand of Shehbaz, the bureau said that the investigations are not over yet claiming that the PML-N leader was not cooperating.

The court rejected NAB's request and sent Sharif to Kot Lakhpat Jail on a 14-day remand.

Meanwhile, the Punjab Home Department has said that Shehbaz Sharif will be treated like an ordinary inmate at the Kot Lakhpat Jail.

The PML-N president will be kept in barrack number 2 and will only be allotted separate room, bed, table lamp and other facilities after approval of Class B according to the Pakistan Prisons Rules, 1978.
