LAHORE: Accountability Court was told on Tuesday that the leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly Shehbaz Sharif will return to Pakistan on June 11.
During the hearing of Ashiana Housing scam, Sharif’s lawyer Atta Tarrar told the court that his client will return to the country on June 11. The Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz (PML-N) president left for London on April 10.
The lawyer also filed an application requesting his client’s exemption from court proceedings until his return. The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) prosecutor objected to the plea and requested the court to dismiss it. The bureau argued that Sharif can easily be treated in Pakistan.
The bureau also asked the court to issue arrest warrants against Sharif. However, the court rejected NAB’s plea and granted an exemption to Sharif till the next hearing, local media reported.
