Shahbaz Sharif gets clean chit from NAB over a two decades old case

LAHORE: An accountability court in Lahore adjourned on Friday the National Accountability Bureau’s (NAB) plea to close a two-decade-old inquiry against PML-N president Shehbaz Sharif over alleged illegal allotment of twelve plots.

The court put off the hearing due to the presiding officer of the court being on leave. It directed the lawyers representing parties to the case to turn up in court tomorrow to forward their arguments.

The anti-corruption link watchdog shelved the inquiry pending for the past 20 years for want of evidence.

It said all record was completely gutted due to a fire engulfing the building of the Lahore Development Authority (LDA).
