LAHORE: An accountability court on Friday granted 14-day physical remand of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s principal secretary Fawad Hassan Fawad for questioning over the charges of corruption and power abuse.
NAB officials produced the senior bureaucrat before the court and requested it to grant his 14-day physical remand for interrogation.
The accountability judge allowed their plea and handed over the custody of Fawad to them with direction to produce him in court on expiry of his remand with a progress report.
The NAB had taken Fawad into custody on Thursday in the Ashiana Iqbal Housing Scheme scandal.
The anti-corruption burea tightened noose around one of the country’s senior-most bureaucrats as the Director General (DG) NAB informed that Fawad Hassan Fawad has been arrested in three graft cases and the officials of NAB questioning him.
Three corruption cases against former premier Nawaz Sharif’s principal secretary involved Ashiana Housing Scheme, illegal employment in a private bank and unlawful transfer of nine CNG stations.
