Lahore: President Shehbaz Sharif, president of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), skipped the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) appearance in court during a coronavirus outbreak.
The younger Sharif was asked to appear before the NAB in ongoing money laundering probe against him.
According to party spokesman Attaullah Tarar, Sharif is a cancer survivor, and because of the current coronavirus situation, his health prevents him from appearing before the corruption watchdog.
In response to the subpoena, Talal insisted that Sharif had filed a written response to the NAB in this regard, adding that the opposition leader had been detained 130 days earlier, including 61 days in NAB detention, and was questioned in detail.
It should be mentioned here that in addition to washing Baz, his sons Hamza Shebaz and Sulaiman Shebaz were also nominated to participate in the money laundering case.

Last month, the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) closed an investigation into 12 land allocations targeting the President of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz, Shehbaz Sharif.
The NAB board decided to close the investigation after no evidence was found involving Shehbaz Sharif.
The investigation of the 12 plots allocated to Shehbaz Sharif has been waiting for almost two decades.
