KARACHI: The Sindh High Court (SHC) issued on Tuesday intimation notices to the National Accountability Bureau's special prosecutor and the deputy attorney general on a miscellaneous application moved by the self-exiled Pakistan Peoples Party leader, Sharjeel Inam Memon, seeking extension of protective bail in corruption cases.
Sharjeel Memon to be declared ‘proclaimed offender’
Headed by Justice Syed Muhammad Farooq Shah, a two-judge bench called comments from them by February 24. Memon, the former provincial information minister, sought one-month extension in protective bail which was granted to him in two corruption references filed by the national anti-graft watchdog, but it had expired due to his failure to surrender before the accountability court in Karachi.
On Tuesday, advocate Faiz H Shah informed the two judges that the court had extended bail to Memon on different occasions and lately directed him to surrender before the trial court on February 8.
