LAHORE: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) President and Opposition Leader in National Assembly (NA) Shehbaz Sharif has appeared before National Accountability Bureau (NAB) in money laundering and assets before income cases.
According to details, stringent security arrangements have been taken to avoid any untoward incident, however, a large number of PML-N workers gathered outside the NAB office and chanted slogans in favour of party leader.
The PML-N workers violated the SOPs designed to control over the spike in the coronavirus cases.
PML-N president Shehbaz Sharif on Tuesday made an appearance at the National Accountability Bureau office in Lahore in connection with cases of money laundering and assets beyond known sources of income. The development follows an attempt a week ago by NAB to arrest Sharif from his Model Town residence. After a two-hour long siege, NAB officials had to return empty handed after learning Sharif is not present there.
It came after Sharif was a no show for a NAB summons earlier that day.
The opposition leader’s appearance today amid heavy security arrangements lasted a little over an hour. A number of PML-N supporters had gathered outside the office to chant slogans in support of the party leader.
