The Lahore High Court (LHC) on Wednesday (April 17) extended the interim bail of Punjab Opposition Leader Hamza Shehbaz to April 25 in assets beyond means, money laundering and Saaf Paani cases.
In reaction of NAB’s arguments that Hamza is involved in money laundering, Hamza’s counsel argued that his client has not been provided full copies and require time to submit the reply.
Earlier National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on April 6 carried out second raid to arrest Hamza Shehbaz. Hamza along with his brother Salman, is 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.
