ISLAMABAD – National Assembly Speaker Asad Qaiser Wednesday issued production orders for opposition leader Shehbaz Sharif.
The PML-N president in the wake of orders will be able to attend the extraordinary session of the National Assembly on October 17.
Shehbaz Sharif was arrested in a graft case by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on October 5. He has been charged with awarding illegal contracts to his favourite firm in the Ashiana-e-Iqbal Housing scheme.
NAB investigators quizzed Shehbaz Sharif regarding a tender awarded to a private consultancy firm for the feasibility of Saaf Pani Company.
The PML-N president had failed to satisfy the probing team of the bureau during the inquiry and was ultimately arrested.
The anti-graft watchdog has claimed that the company did not conduct any kind of survey. Nevertheless, the company was paid a lucrative sum of Rs1.5 billion.
Shehbaz was apprehended during his appearance before NAB in Saaf Pani Company scam. Sources told that three files were tabled before him.
Afterwards, Shehbaz Sharif was handed over to NAB on a 10-day physical remand to probe the Ashiana Housing scandal.
