LAHORE : An accountability court in Lahore on Tuesday granted the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) 14-day physical remand of President of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Shehbaz Sharif, a day after his arrest.
Accountability court admin judge Jawad-ul-Hassan announced the decision and ordered that Opposition Leader be presented before the court again on October 13.
During the hearing, Shehbaz Sharif, while defending himself in the court, argued that justice is not being done due to NAB-Niazi nexus. My government did not reduced price of sugarcane in the Punjab nor any of our policies caused losses to farmers, he added.
Earlier, Opposition Leader was brought to the court by a team of the accountability bureau.
On the other hand, court has granted relief to daughter of Shehbaz Sharif and accepted her plea of exemption from appearance during court hearing. Representatives of Javeria Ali will appear before the court to mark her attendance.
