Lahore: President of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Shehbaz Sharif has filed a bail plea in Lahore High Court (LHC) to avoid an arrest in assets beyond means and money laundering case.
Opposition Leader of National Assembly, in his plea, took the stance that NAB might arrest him in a pending inquiry. NAB made the case with malicious intentions as he has been declaring his assets regularly, Shehbaz added.
The petition, which was filed through Advocate Amjad Pervaiz, states that Shehbaz Sharif started his business in 1972 and played an important role in agriculture, sugar and textile industries and joined politics in 1988 for the betterment of the society.
Plea further states that NAB launched an inquiry with allegations of general nature, under the political influence of the current government. “Was arrested in the same case in 2018 and fully cooperated with NAB”, Shehbaz Sharif said in his plea.
