Court grants seven-day bail to Miftah, Imranul Haq

The Sindh High Court (SHC) on Friday granted seven-day bail to former finance minister Miftah Ismail and former Pakistan State Oil (PSO) CEO Sheikh Imranul Haque.
The duo had submitted a plea for pre-arrest bail earlier in the day.
On July 18, the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) arrested former prime minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi for his alleged involvement in a case pertaining to the award of liquefied natural gas (LNG) import contracts while arrest warrants have been issued for former finance minister Miftah in the same case.
A day earlier, the anti-corruption watchdog had summoned Abbasi and Ismail in the LNG case but they skipped the hearing. The team investigating the case said that Abbasi had not answered all the questions and was continually seeking more time.
