Day after skipping NAB hearing, Shehbaz Sharif granted pre-arrest bail by LHC

Shehbaz Sharif, leader of the opposition in National Assembly, has been granted pre-arrest bail till June 17 by a Lahore High Court division bench. A day ago, a team of National Accountability Bureau (NAB) raided Sharif’s Model Town residence to arrest him in cases related to money laundering and assets beyond known sources of income, after he refused to appear before NAB the third time.

In a statement submitted to the bureau, he cited health reasons for avoiding exposure and added that he was available to answer any queries by the investigation team via Skype.
