Pakistan’s Main Opposition Leader Faces Fresh Corruption Case

ISLAMABAD – A Pakistani court has launched a fresh corruption case against the leader of the country’s main opposition party, an official source said on Saturday.

Shehbaz Sharif, who helms the Pakistan Muslim League (PML-N), has been under arrest since Nov. 6 in another case of alleged corruption related to a housing scheme.

“The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) ordered the arrest of Shehbaz Sharif in another case of Ramzan Sugar Mills,” the spokesperson of the anti-corruption body in Lahore, Muhammed Waqarm, told EFE.

According to Waqarm, there are accusations that Sharif, during his tenure as head of the government of Punjab province, “used public funds to benefit Ramzan Sugar Mills, which belongs to his family.”

The NAB court also summoned his children, Salman Shehbaz and Hamza Shehbaz, who are directors of the sugar mill, for investigations into the case.

“Salman did not appear before the court and Hamza Shehbaz appeared and he is now on a pre-arrest bail,” the NAB spokesperson said.

Around the end of September, Sharif’s brother, former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, was released after being in prison since July, as the High Court of Islamabad decided to suspend the 10-year sentence he was serving for corruption.
