Shahbaz Sharif had taken a stand in the petition that he started his career as a businessman in 1972. He has been involved in the business of agriculture, sugar, and textile industry. He entered practical politics in 1988. The NAB misappropriated assets in excess of income.
The petition said that due to the political influence of the present government, the NAB had started an inquiry. All the allegations leveled by the NAB are of general nature. He was arrested in the same case in 2018 as well. Full cooperation, but NAB did not provide any evidence of abuse of power.
Shahbaz Sharif said that NAB could not exercise its jurisdiction in such cases in which there was no evidence since it has stepped into practical politics. All its assets have been disclosed in the statements. All allegations of money laundering are baseless.
According to the petitioner, the NAB cannot conduct an inquiry under the Anti-Money Laundering Act. All the documents regarding the assets are already in possession of the NAB. However, there is a fear of re-arrest by the NAB, so interim bail should be granted.
