LAHORE (92 News) – The Lahore High Court (LHC) on Thursday extended interim bail of PML-N president Shehbaz Sharif in the money laundering and assets beyond income cases until August 17. A two-judge bench, headed by Justice Abid Masood Naqvi, heard the bail plea of opposition leader in National Assembly. Shehbaz Sharif appeared before court. The strict security measures have been taken inside and outside the court to avoid any untoward situation. However, unauthorized persons have been barred from entering the high court. During the hearing, the court has excused itself from hearing the case and referred it to another bench. Party workers have reached the LHC to express solidarity with their leader. PML-N leaders Rana Sanaullah and others also reached the court to show solidarity with their party president. Speaking to the journalists outside the court, the PML-N president said that in last hearing the NAB prosecutor told the court that investigation against me had been completed. “PML-N is being targeted for political revenge and there will be an all parties (APC) conference after Eidul Azha,” he said, adding that the role of NAB has surfaced to the people after the verdict of the Supreme Court. Earlier, the LHC has extended interim bail of Pakistan Muslim League-N (PML-N) President Shehbaz Sharif till July 23 in money laundering and assets beyond income cases. During the proceedings, the opposition leader in National Assembly appeared before court and requested to extend his bail. The PML-N leaders violated the SOPs of coronavirus during the Shebaz Sharif’s appearance in the court. They pushed police officials and exchanged heated words. Meanwhile, the strict security arrangements have been taken to avoid any untoward incident. It is worth mentioning here that he has been accused of owning more assets than his known sources of income. The opposition leader’s arrest warrant in the case was issued on May 28, according to NAB.
