ISLAMABAD: Suleman Shehbaz, son of Prime Minster Shehbaz Sharif, has been granted protective bail of 14 days in two separate cases by Islamabad High Court as he surrendered today. Suleman Shahbaz had been declared absconder in a case related to money laundering, and was wanted by NAB in assets-beyond-known-means case.

A division bench comprising Chief Justice Aamer Farooq and Justice Sardar Ijaz Ishaq Khan heard Suleman’s petition today. The court directed Suleman Shehbaz to appear in the relevant courts, and barred both the FIA and NAB from arresting Suleman Shahbaz Sharif.

Earlier on December 8, it may be recalled, the IHC had issued orders restraining authorities from arresting Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif’s son Suleman Shehbaz from the airport on his arrival to Pakistan and asked him to surrender before the court by December 13 (today).
