Salman Shehbaz, the son of Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif, chose to come home and applied for protective bail at the Islamabad High Court on Wednesday (IHC).
Suleman’s attorney Amjad Pervaiz submitted a plea to the IHC asking for two weeks of precautionary bail in a money laundering case that had been brought against him.
In a petition, Salman claimed that he is a “businessman” and has “never held a governmental post.” Additionally, he claimed that a “false case of money laundering” had been brought against him.
The petitioner also said that the Securities and Exchange Commission of Pakistan (SECP) still has “all shares” registered and that he has never received a notice from the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA).
The petition said, “I have been resident in the United Kingdom since 2018,” and added that the FIA had brought a case against him while he was away.
