AC declares Shehbaz's wife Nusrat as proclaimed offender
The accountability court judge, during the hearing, said the 30-day deadline that was given to Nusrat Shehbaz to appear before the court has expired. The accused has to present arguments on the testimonies of the National Accountability Bureau’s (NAB) witnesses by themselves now, the judge remarked.
All the accused in the case pleaded not guilty. Shehbaz Sharif, while rejecting allegations of the anti-graft watchdog, said that he was being politically victimized.
On September 28, the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) team had arrested Shehbaz Sharif in money laundering case after Lahore High Court (LHC) rejected his bail plea.
