Lahore High Court extends Rehman Malik's bail

Court Watch Posted on

The court, however, has extended Rehman Malik’s interim bail until February 25.

On December 23, 2009, a division bench of the Lahore High Court had stayed execution of a three-year sentence, awarded by an accountability court to Malik, in two National Accountability Bureau cases, and granted him bail until January 26.

The petitioner, through his counsel, Chaudhry Mushtaq Ahmad Khan, had contended his prosecution was political victimisation and he was sentenced in absentia without fulfilling legal requirements.

Earlier, the Lahore High Court had dismissed Malik's application to waive his sentence in two references in the yellow cab scam and directed his counsel to file a written petition under Article 199 of the Peoples' Representatives Act.

These two references had been filed against the then Director FIA Rehman Malik for committing fraud in the yellow cab scheme.
