LAHORE: The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) will produce Leader of the Opposition in the Punjab Assembly Hamza Shahbaz before an accountability court on Friday in Ramzan Sugar Mills, alleged money laundering and assets cases.
The 14-day physical remand of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader has ended.
The court has already indicted Hamza Shahbaz and Shehbaz Sharif – Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly – in the Ramzan Sugar Mills case, and witness Riaz Hussain recorded his statement during the previous hearing.
The NAB Special Prosecutor Waris Ali Janjua will present arguments on behalf of the anti-corruption watchdog while Advocate Amjad Pervez will represent Shehbaz Sharif. The Accountability Court Judge Naeem Arshad will conduct the hearing.
Let it be known that the NAB had detained Hamza Shahbaz on June 11 as the Lahore High Court (LHC) turned down his applications for extension in the interim bail.
The development allowed the NAB to further investigate into corruption charges against him, and in this regard, a special team shifted him to the bureau’s headquarter at Thokar Niaz Baig in Lahore. For more latest news Pakistan, visit 9newshd.tv
