Speaker Asad Qaiser has convened a National Assembly session on October 29 and issued orders for the production of Leader of the Opposition Shahbaz Sharif, who has been in the custody of the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) in the Ashiyana housing scam.

Members of the main opposition PML-N had on Wednesday formally submitted an application to the NA Secretariat, requesting the speaker to issue a production order for opposition leader and party president Sharif so that he could attend the upcoming session of the house beginning on Oct 29.

The production orders, copies of which have been sent to NAB and other concerned authorities, direct the bureau’s Lahore team to produce Sharif at 4pm on Monday before the parliament’s sergeant-at-arms, who after the conclusion of the session will return him to NAB’s custody.
