On Tuesday, Islamabad High Court approved the bail of former Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi and PML-N leader Ahsan Iqbal in LNG reference and Narowal City project case.
A two-member bench of the IHC, under Chief Justice IHC Athar Minullah, heard both the cases today. During the hearing, Additional Prosecutor General Nab opposed the bail of Iqbal, saying that if the suspect is granted bail then it can disrupt the case’s record.
During the arguments in the sports city case, Justice Minallah remarked that arresting a suspect to interrogate him shows incompetence on the part of the investigation officer and a suspect is innocent until the crime is proven against him.
The APG Nab then said that if the PML-N leader submits his passport and appears when summoned by the court then he has no objection.
The IHC ordered Abbasi and Iqbal to submit a bond of Rs 10 million each. Meanwhile, the court ordered that the passports of Abbasi and Iqbal remain in the custody of the National Accountability Bureau.
