Sharjeel Memon allowed to travel abroad to meet daughter for 30 days


KARACHI: Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) leader and MPA Sharjeel Inam Memon has been allowed to travel abroad by Sindh High Court (SHC) despite opposition from the National Accountability Bureau (NAB), ARY NEWS reported on Friday.

The Sindh High Court (SHC) has, however, linked its decision with the approval of the trial court besides also directing Sharjeel Memon to submit surety bonds of Rs1 million.

“The 30-day abroad visit will begin the day he will get a nod from the trial court,” the court said as the NAB prosecutor opposed the decision fearing that the PPP leader won’t return.

The lawyer representing the PPP leader said that Sharjeel Memon’s daughter was studying abroad and he wanted to meet her. The NAB prosecutor said that the PPP leader was wanted in two NAB references besides having a pending inquiry against him relating to illegal recruitments.

On July 19, Pakistan People’s Party lawmaker Sharjeel Memon 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 Sharjeel Memon 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 Sharjeel Memon is currently on bail in graft cases as National Accountability Bureau has launched two references against him in Sindh and an inquiry in Islamabad.
