Money laundering: LHC issues notices on Fawad’s plea !

LAHORE: A Lahore High Court (LHC) bench Wednesday issued notices to the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) and others on a petition of bureaucrat Fawad Hassan Fawad challenging arrest.
The bench headed by Justice Muhammad Tariq Abbasi heard the petition. During the proceedings, the petitioner’s counsel argued that NAB arrested his client in connection with the Punjab Land Development Company / Ashiana Iqbal Housing scam without fulfilling legal requirements. He said inquiry against his client for having illegal assets was initiated during the remand period and requested the court to order his release. He also requested the court to issue directions for the formation of a medical board for medical examination of Fawad.
However, the bench declined the request for the formation of a medical board and asked the council to move a civil miscellaneous application for the purpose.
