LAHORE (92 News) - An accountability court adjourned on Saturday the hearing into Ramzan sugar mills case till August 1.

Pakistan Muslim League-N president Shehbaz Sharif appeared before the court.

Judge Waseem Akhtar asked the NAB prosecutor why Hamza Shehbaz had not been produced before the court.

The prosecutor pleaded that Hamza had been on judicial remand in Ramzan sugar mills case, saying the investigation officer didn't receive orders to produce him before the court.

However, counsel for Hamza asserted that court in the previous hearing had clearly ordered to produce Hamza in today's hearing and it is violation of court order to not bringing him to the hearing.

The court ordered NAB to produce Hamza Shehbaz in next hearing.

Shehbaz Sharif said he always gave a respect to the law, but sometimes he skipped court hearing because of backache.

He alleged the government has got a news story published against him in a UK newspaper.

"To embezzle aid meant for rehabilitation of earthquake victims is equal to eat a dead man's meat. They (government) would have knocked the door of a court if they had any evidence of money transfer to my accounts," the ex-chief minister Punjab questioned those who got the story published in the newspaper.
