Lahore High Court (LHC) has extended interim bail of Opposition Leader Shehbaz Sharif in the money laundering case till July 23rd.
According to the details, Shehbaz appeared before the court amid strict security. The court granted the plea to adjourn the case in the absence of Shahbaz Sharif’s lawyers. On June 1, the opposition leader had filed a bail plea in LHC to avoid arrest in assets beyond means and money laundering cases.
The opposition leader, in his plea, took the stance that NAB might arrest him in a pending inquiry. The anti-corruption watchdog had prepared the case with malicious intentions as he has been declaring his assets regularly, Shehbaz stated.
The petition, which was filed through Advocate Amjad Pervaiz, stated that Shehbaz started his business in 1972 and played an important role in the agriculture, sugar, and textile industries and joined politics in 1988 for the betterment of the society.
