Lahore: An accountability court in Lahore on Tuesday granted the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) 14-day physical remand of President of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Shehbaz Sharif, a day after his arrest.
Jawad-ul-Hassan, judge of the Accountability Court, announced the decision and ordered the opposition leader to appear in court again on October 13.
During the hearing, Shehbaz Sharif, while defending himself in the court, argued that justice is not being done due to NAB-Niazi nexus. My government did not reduced price of sugarcane in the Punjab nor any of our policies caused losses to farmers, he added.
Earlier, the leader of the opposition party was taken to court by a team from the Accountability Bureau.
On the other hand, the court has provided relief to Shehbaz Sharif’s daughter and accepted her request for exemption from appearing in court. Representatives of Javeria Ali will testify in court.
