ISLAMABAD: Following the months of investigations, Lahore High Court (LHC) on Tuesday has granted bail of former Prime Minister (PM) Nawaz Sharif’s principal secretary Fawad Hasan Fawad in assets beyond income case.
During the hearing, Fawad’s lawyer told the court that his client was arrested in 2018 but no indictment proceeding was carried out against him.
The court remarked why National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has not apprehended the three benami suspects in connection with the case until now. The one having nothing on his name was taken into custody, Justice Tariq Abbasi stated.
Fawad’s bail was earlier rejected on the basis of the investigation but now, a complete reference exposing everything is present in the court, the lawyer stated.
