An accountability court ordered confiscation of properties of former chief minister Punjab Shehbaz Sharif’s son, Suleman Shehbaz in relation to the ongoing money laundering case against the Sharifs.
The court, under Judge Malik Amir Mohammad Khan, heard the case. In the hearing, the court approved the NAB’s request to confiscate properties of Shehbaz Sharif’s son. The court, in its proceedings, also declared Suleman Shehbaz an absconder and ordered publishing of advertisements in this regard against the suspect.
PTI leaders and the NAB had alleged that the former chief minister of Punjab Shehbaz Sharif and his sons Hamza and Suleman, who is in London these days with his family, have been involved in money laundering of 85 billion Rupees.
Hamza along with his brother Salman also accused of embezzling Rs200 million from public funds in order to build a bridge benefiting Ramzan Sugar Mills — of which he is a director — in Chiniot. The money, according to NAB, was released by then chief minister of Punjab Shehbaz Sharif, who is also a suspect in the case. Hamza is also accused of owning assets beyond means and is being probed by a combined investigation team from NAB.
