Islamabad (HRNW) PPP leader Sharjeel Memon has been granted bail in the fake accounts case. The Islamabad High Court has approved his pre-arrest bail in the case.
The court has stopped NAB from arresting the Sindh MPA. The court heard his bail plea in the Roshan Sindh Programme case on Wednesday.
NAB said that the Rural Development Authority director-general told it that a contractor had given him a Rs90 million bribe and Rs70 million of it was pocketed by Memon.
Chief Justice Athar Minallah asked whether this amount that was allegedly given to Memon was ever cashed. The NAB prosecutor informed him that a cheque in Memon’s name was deposited in a fake account.
Then the investigation is complete and NAB should file a reference, said the judge.
