LAHORE (92 News) – A Lahore accountability court on Monday set November 11 for indictment of PML-N President Shehbaz Sharif, his son Hamza Shehbaz and other members of his family in a money laundering and assets beyond means case.

Shehbaz Sharif and his son were brought to the court in an armoured personnel carrier.

During the hearing, the judge asked about the representative of home secretary over which, the prosecutor said that no one has appeared from the side of home secretary so far.

The judge expressed displeasure over people crowding the courtroom and observed that he had called for people to be allowed inside the court to a certain limit. He called a short recess.

Resuming the hearing later, the court provided copies of approvers’ statements to Shehbaz, Hamza and other accused.

Subsequently, the judge has adjourned the hearing till November 11 when, the judge ruled, the court will frame charges against all accused.

On the other hand, Maryam Nawaz reached an accountability court to meet her uncle Shehbaz Sharif and cousin Hamza Shehbaz Sharif. During the meeting country’s political situation came under discussion. Maryam also inquired about the health of Shehbaz Sharif and Hamza.

While informal talking with journalists outside the accountability court, Maryam Nawaz has claimed that general elections will be held next year and also expressed her hope that PML-N will win elections in Gilgit-Baltistan.

The PML-N leader later met party president Shehbaz Sharif and Opposition Leader in Punjab Assembly Hamza Shahbaz.

Rejecting rumours of differences between the family, Maryam said that the Sharif family is united and will remain. "People have been talking about differences in the family for the last 30 years, but the family stands firmly united," she added.

Upon the arrival of Maryam at the accountability court Lahore, police and the party workers exchanged words when the PML-N workers were barred from entering the court along with Maryam.
