Shahbaz Sharif lands in hot waters
ISLAMABAD - The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on Thursday filed a petition in the Supreme Court against Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PMLN) President Shehbaz Sharif’s release on bail in the Ramzan Sugar Mills and Ashiana Housing Scheme cases. The plea submitted by NAB Special Prosecutor Akram Qureshi, stated that Shehbaz Sharif’s bail approval by the Lahore High Court was contrary to the facts. The NAB took the stance that former Punjab chief minister caused loss to the national exchequer in Ramzan Sugar Mills and Ashiana Housing Scheme scams. The apex court was requested to nullify the LHC’s decision of bail approval.
