Shehbaz, Hamza to appear before Accountability Court today
Accountability Court in Lahore on Wednesday (today) will resume hearing of Ramzan Sugar Mills reference and Ashiana Housing Iqbal Scheme case.

On this occasion, Opposition leader in the National Assembly Mian Shehbaz Sharif and his son Hamza Shehbaz will appear before the court.

Police and administration have set up strict security measures outside the court.

It is to be noted that statements of witnesses; Arif Majeed Butt and Israr Saeed have already been recorded in the case.

Earlier on Tuesday, Lahore High Court (LHC) issued directives to remove the name of former chief minister Punjab Mian Shehbaz Sharif’s from the Exit Control List (ECL).

A three-judge bench headed by Justice Malik Shehzad heard on a petition filed by Shehbaz Sharif.

Shehbaz’s counsel stated that Shehbaz, whenever summoned, has appeared before the Accountability Watchdogs.

When questioned by the court over ongoing inquiry in assets beyond known sources of income case against the PML-N president, lawyer briefed that NAB began the inquiry on October 23, 2018 over suspicious transaction into the account of Shehbaz Sharif.

“Even in Ayan Ali’s case, the court removed her name from ECL, however, Shehbaz’s name was put on the list right after his bail plea was approved. Seems like NAB is kidding with us, whereas Shehbaz came back to Pakistan, leaving her ailing wife behind”, the counsel stated.
