PPP leader Sharjeel Memon has been accused of owning more assets than his sources of income. NAB has filed a Rs2.2 billion corruption reference against him.
He filed an interim bail plea in the Sindh High Court to avoid arrest in the assets reference. His wife and mother have been named in the case too.
The court instructed on Wednesday the prosecution and defence to present their final arguments in the case at the next hearing on July 6.
This, however, is not the only case against him. NAB has accused him of embezzling the Rs5.7 billion the information ministry paid to advertising agencies for awareness campaigns between 2013 and 2015. He was serving as Sindh’s information minister at the time.
His bail in the case was approved in June 2019. Memon is also named in the Roshan Sindh programme case related to the installation of solar streetlights in different districts of the province. It is one of the 28 cases that fall under the fake accounts case.
