LHC extends Saad Rafique, brother’s interim bail by 15 days

News by:

The Lahore High Court (LHC) on Wednesday granted a 15-day exemption in Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Khawaja Saad Rafique and his brother Salman’s interim bail in the Paragon Housing Society scam.

On October 15, the LHC had accepted the PML-N leader and his brother’s petition for an interim bail after the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) had initiated a corruption probe against them. The LHC had prohibited NAB from arresting the brothers till October 24 (today).

A two-judge bench of the LHC heard the brothers’ petitions again today and extended their interim bail till November 14.

Rafique, Salman and a NAB team appeared before the bench today for the hearing.
