Deal or No Deal: NAB did not oppose former PM Nawaz Sharif bail plea in LHC

ISLAMABAD: The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on Friday announced that it had chosen not to challenge former prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s bail in the Chaudhry Sugar Mills case, on humanitarian grounds.

The statement was issued to clarify what NAB said "news items reported by a section of media" following the Lahore High Court's decision to grant Nawaz Sharif bail in Chaudhry Sugar Mills case.

The plea was filed by Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) President Shehbaz Sharif.

A division bench of the LHC approved the bail against the surety bonds of Rs20 million.
