LAHORE: The Lahore High Court on Thursday ordered the release of opposition leader in National Assembly, Shehbaz Sharif who moved to the court seeking bail on Ashiana Housing Scheme case and Ramzan Sugar Mill Case being pursued by National Accountability Bureau (NAB).
The Pakistan Muslim League (Nawaz) president, Shehbaz, on January 22nd had filed a bail plea in the LHC. NAB had arrested Shehbaz on October 5, 2018 in connection to the Ashiana Iqbal Housing Scheme case.
Approving Shehbaz’s bail petitions, the LHC ordered his release.
However, the bench rejected former principal secretary to then prime minister Nawaz Sharif, Fawad Hassan Fawad’s request for bail in a case pertaining to holding assets beyond his means.
