PML-N leaders address press conference after Shehbaz arrestArchive
The top leadership of the PML-N is addressing a press conference, hours after the party's president Shehbaz Sharif was arrested by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB).
Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly Shehbaz was arrested after the Lahore High Court rejected his bail plea in a money laundering case.
Shehbaz was taken into custody from the court's premises, where a large number of PML-N workers and supporters had gathered ahead of the hearing.
Addressing the news conference, PML-N Vice President Maryam Nawaz said today was a "very sad day" because the opposition leader had been arrested again.
"I don't have a grain of doubt that Shehbaz Sharif was not arrested for corruption or accountability. A reference against him was ongoing and he was arrested in the middle," she said, adding that only reason Shehbaz was arrested was that he "has not left his brother's side".
