Pakistan’s accountability bureau raided the house of opposition leader Shehbaz Sharif Friday afternoon. 

The news was confirmed by PML-N spokesperson Marriyum Aurangzeb.

She said that both Shehbaz and his son Hamza Shehbaz were in the house at the time of the raid. “NAB raided the house without any warrant,” she said. “Are they terrorists? Why is NAB raiding their house like this?”

Aurangzeb said that NAB is just taking out its frustration because they couldn’t prove anything against the PML-N leaders. “When they couldn’t find any evidence, they forged the assets case against them,” she added.

NAB has been investigating Shehbaz and his sons for owning more assets than their known sources of income.

The raid comes a day after the PML-N president’s name was removed from the Exit Control List. He was arrested by NAB on October 5, 2018 over his alleged involvement in Ashiana-e-Iqbal housing scheme scam. He was released on bail on February 14 after the Lahore High Court accepted his bail plea.

NAB, however, said it has arrest warrants. “If they have it, then they should show it to us,” PML-N’s Mohammad Zubair told SAMAA TV. PML-N workers have started gathering outside the house.

The NAB team left the house without arresting anyone.

A week ago, the Supreme Court ruled that NAB no longer needs to tell people in advance about their arrests. An examination of the National Accountability Ordinance, 1999, revealed that NAB can arrest any person without informing them, the court said.

    This is a third rate government, and thus far has not achieved any significant progress in developing either agriculture or industry. All they do is to gather and raise their arms to signify great achievement.
