SC Demands Sharjeel Inam Memon Inquiry Details off NAB
KARACHI: The Sindh High Court (SHC) on Thursday directed the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) to submit inquiry details, if any, initiated against Pakistan Peoples Party leader (PPP) Sharjeel Inam Memon.
A division bench of the SHC headed by Justice Muhammad Ali Mazhar sought details regarding a petition filed by the former provincial minister who challenged his name being placed on the exit control list (ECL) and sought pre-arrest bail.
According to reports, a two-judge bench ordered the bureau to submit all details by January 14.
Currently residing in Dubai, Memon upon his return to the country, challenged his arrest on the basis of graft inquiries and his name being placed on ECL.
Further, Memon filed two separate petitions through his attorney Mazhar Hussain Pitafi, last week, who informed the bench that the petitioner recently learned through the media that NAB had initiated a corruption inquiry against him.
He maintained that neither the petitioner has been involved in corrupt practices nor has he ever misused power during his tenure as a minister.
The counsel alleged that attempts are being made to implicate Memon in fake inquiries for offences he has never committed. He sought directions for the NAB Sindh DG and chairperson to refrain from booking his client in connection with any ‘fake’ inquiry.
