SHC accepts bail plea of Shajeel Memon in corruption case


KARACHI: The Sindh High Court (SHC) on Tuesday accepted bail application of the former Sindh information minister Sharjeel Memon in Rs5.76 billion corruption case and ordered his name be placed on the Exit Control List (ECL).
The court had reserved its verdict in the previous hearing in a bail plea filed by Memon.
The court ordered Memon to submit Rs5 million as surety bond and ordered that his name be placed on the no-fly list.
On October 2017, the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) had apprehended Memon after the SHC rejected his bail.
Memon along with 12 others is accused of corruption worth Rs5.76 billion in the award of advertisements of the Sindh government’s awareness campaigns in the electronic media.
