Lahore: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) President Shehbaz Sharif has arrived at the Lahore High Court (LHC) to extend his temporary bail in a money laundering case.
According to the details, the two-member judge of the Lahore High Court will be composed of Judge Sadad Ahmed Naim and Judge Farouk Hyde and will hear the defense. During this period, Shebaz Sharif’s lawyer will continue his argument. The local government has also ensured strict security arrangements to avoid any unfortunate incidents.
Previously, the LHC had extended Shehbaz Sharif’s temporary bail period to September 28, involving money laundering and property exceeding capacity cases.
On June 1, Shehbaz Sharif filed a bail request with LHC to avoid arrest of assets due to financial resources and money laundering cases. The opposition leader said in his appeal that the National Bank may arrest him in the pending investigation.
Shehbaz said that the anti-corruption watchdog prepared the case with malicious intent when it announced assets regularly.
