The Supreme Court of Pakistan accepted Anwar Majeed’s bail plea on medical grounds Wednesday in the fictitious bank accounts case.
According to the details, the top apex court approved the Omni group head’s bail plea on medical grounds and issued directives for his name to be included in the Exit Control List.
The court, in its order, asked Majeed to hand over his passport to the registrar’s office.
On August 15, 2018, then chief justice of Pakistan Saqib Nisar had rejected the Majeed and his son, Abdul Ghani Majeed’s pre-arrest bail.
Following the proceedings, the Federal Investigation Agency had arrested Majeed outside the courtroom.
Let it be known that Anwar Majeed, a close aide of former president Asif Ali Zardari, was arrested in August 2018 along with his sons from the Supreme Court premises after they appeared before the court in the case of money laundering over Rs35 billion through fake accounts case.
