Lahore (November 03, 2018): A review petition was filed in the Lahore High Court today against a decision to reject PML-N President Shehbaz Sharif’s bail plea.
The Advocate AK Dogar filed the review petition in which the federal government, NAB and Shehbaz have been made respondents.
The petition states that the LHC’s decision to declare an appeal against Shehbaz’s arrest “non-maintainable” is “unlawful”. “If an investigation is ongoing against someone, they cannot be arrested,” the petition said. Further, the petition read, “The arrest of the suspect by NAB before the inquiry was completed and any crime was proven is against the Constitution.”
“Thus, the court should review its decision, approve the plea and grant bail,” the petition added.
