Accountability Court Grants 14-Day Physical Remand of Shehbaz Sharif
By Our Web Desk
LAHORE– An accountability court Tuesday granted the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) 14-day physical remand of President of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) and Leader of Opposition in National Assembly Mian Shehbaz Sharif, a day after his arrest.
Judge Jawad-ul-Hassan announced the decision and ordered Shehbaz be presented before the court again on October 13.
During the hearing, Shehbaz Sharif defended himself in the court, arguing that justice is not being done due to NAB-Niazi nexus.
“My government didn’t reduce price of sugarcane in Punjab nor any of our policies caused losses to farmers.”
Earlier, the PML-N leader was brought to the court by a team of the bureau.
On the other hand, the court granted relief to the daughter of Shehbaz Sharif and accepted her plea of exemption from appearance during court hearing.
Representatives of Javeria Ali will appear before the court to mark her attendance.
