Islamabad: The accountability court has granted bail to former Prime Minister and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Nawaz Sharif in the Toshakhana case.
Nawaz Sharif was accused of obtaining luxury cars from the treasury (Toshakhana) by paying 15% of the actual price.
In 2020, an accountability court declared former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif a proclaimed offender in the Toshakhana case, and perpetual warrants for his arrest were issued due to continuous non-appearance.
The previous week, the accountability court temporarily halted Nawaz’s arrest warrant in the Toshakhana case. Judge Bashir stated that the warrant would be reissued if the accused failed to make a court appearance on October 24.
The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) was directed not to arrest the former prime minister until October 24 (today).
After marking his presence in the accountability court, Nawaz Sharif was allowed to leave the court premises.
In the Toshakhana case, Nawaz Sharif’s bail has been granted against a surety bond of 1 million rupees.
