The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) aims to file a petition in the Supreme Court, against Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) President and Opposition Leader in National Assembly (NA) Shahbaz Sharif's bail which was granted by the High Court.
NAB supports their decision of challenging Shahbaz Sharif's bail by stating that the decision is wary of any external pressure, and is being taken in accordance with the Constitution of Pakistan.
Earlier, The Lahore High Court (LHC) had granted a bail to Shahbaz Sharif, and permitted him to go abroad for a total of eight weeks, on medical grounds. However, Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) on Saturday barred him from leaving for Doha, Qatar.
The FIA staff stopped Shahbaz Sharif on immigration counter at the Allama Iqbal International Airport and informed him that his name is still on the black list in their record. He was told that won't be able to leave the country until his name gets eliminated from the black list.

The Federal government also aims to file a petition against the permission granted to him to leave the country.
The Federal Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry suggested that Shahbaz Sharif’s guarantee of returning should not be accepted as he had earlier assured about the former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif's return, but it got actualized.
