Sharjeel moves SHC for permission to go abroad



Pakistan People’s Party lawmaker SharjeelMemon who is facing graft cases has pleaded before the court to remove his name from the no-fly list in order to attend the first university day of his daughter in a foreign university.


In a plea filed before the Sindh High Court (SHC), a lawyer representing PPP leader SharjeelMemon said that his client’s daughter had secured admission at a foreign university, and being a father he desires to drop her at the university on her first day.


“I am ready to accept anything against approval of being allowed to travel abroad,” Memon said as the plea called for allowing him to travel abroad on August 15.


PPP leader SharjeelMemon is currently on bail in graft cases as National Accountability Bureau has launched two references against him in Sindh and an inquiry in Islamabad.He is facing references over assets beyond income and illegal recruitments while an inquiry in fake bank accounts case against him is also in the progress.


On July 06, the Islamabad High Court granted interim bail to People’s Party leader SharjeelMemon in the Sindh Roshan Program case.


The high court also restrained the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) from the arrest of SharjeelMemon, a former minister of Sindh.


A high court bench comprising of Justice Mohsin Akhtar Kiyani and Justice Babar Sattar heard the case. The bench granted interim bail to the PPP leader until the first week of August and ordered him to deposit surety bonds in court.
