Accountability court orders to provide bed for Shehbaz Sharif

Accountability court orders to provide bed for Shehbaz Sharif

LAHORE (92 News) - An accountability court on Tuesday extended judicial remand of Opposition Leader in National Assembly Shehbaz Sharif and his son Hamza Shehbaz in a money laundering case.

Shehbaz, Hamza and other accused presented before court. During the hearing, Judge Jawadul Hassan ordered jail authorities to provide the PML-N president a bed inside his cell.

Shehbaz Sharif adopted a stance that Prime Minister (PM) Imran Khan is pressurizing NAB to get him punish as soon as possible.

Kot Lakhpat jail superintendent Ejaz Asghar informed the judge that Hamza has been provided personal help apart from other facilities. He said they had Shehbaz medically examined at Jinnah Hospital and he will soon be taken to a hospital for an MRI scan.

Advocate Amjad Pervaiz filed an application on behalf of Shehbaz’s wife Nusrat Shehbaz seeking exemption from appearance in court on medical grounds. The NAB prosecutor opposing the plea said she is entitled to such relief under the law.

After hearing arguments from both sides, the judge reserved a verdict on the exemption plea. The hearing was adjourned until November 2.
