KARACHI: An accountability court on Saturday adjourned the hearing of a graft reference against former Sindh information minister Sharjeel Memon until February 15 due to the absence of the accountability judge. Police produced the PPP leader and other suspects in the court as it was to resume the trial in the case pertaining to the alleged corruption of Rs 5.76 billion in the provincial Information Department. Talking to the media persons outside the court, PPP leader Sharjeel Memon said that law of contempt of court should be implemented, adding that the contempt of court cases should also be opened against those who had committed the crimes in the past. He said that former prime minister Nawaz Sharif had targeted institutions of the country. The PPP leader said that law of NAB should be equal for everyone in the country. He denied speculations that Rao Anwar, former SSP Malir, was being given protection by someone. On October 23, Sharjeel Memon was taken into custody along with other accused from outside the SHC main building after the court revoked their interim bail in a case pertaining to the corruption of Rs 5.76 billion in the provincial Information Department.
