An Accountability Court of Lahore on Wednesday (July 24) extended the physical remand of opposition leader in Punjab Assembly Hamza Shehbaz by 10 days in assets case. NAB Produced Hamza before the court after his 14-day remand expired.
During the hearing, NAB prosecutor presented financial statements of the suspect. “Comparisons have been done between Hamza Shehbaz’s accounts and income from 30 June 2016 to 2017. It was found that the accused transferred around Rs16 million into his mother’s bank accounts”, the prosecution told court.
After hearing arguments of both parties, the court then extended physical remand of Hamza Shehbaz for 10 days, ordering the production of Hamza on August 03.
in another case, 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.
