LAHORE (Muslim Times) – Opposition Leader in the National Assembly (NA) and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) president Shehbaz Sharif was presented before accountability court after his 10-day physical remand in Ashiana Housing Scheme case ended today (Tuesday).
During the hearing, National Accountability Bureau (NAB) prosecutor Waris Ali Janjua requested the court to extend remand of Shehbaz Sharif to probe the scandal. The court reserved the decision over anti-graft watchdog’s appeal which will be announced shortly.
Stringent security arrangements were in place for the PML-N president’s appearance before the court.
Earlier on October 15, NAB had interrogated Shehbaz Sharif regarding CASA Developers and Paragon City scandals prior to his appearance in the court. Ex-Chief Minister of Punjab (CM) said he himself ordered investigation into corruption allegations in Ashiana-e-Iqbal Housing Scheme.
