Home Ministry recommends release of Shehbaz Sharif, Hamza for five days on parole
Sources said that the Home Ministry has sent the application to Punjab Chief Minister Sardar Usman Buzdar. The Home Ministry is not authorized to approve parole more than two days. "Only the chief minister can grant parole for more than five days," the sources said.
Earlier on Monday, Pakistan Muslim League-N (PML-N) leader Attaullah Tarar submitted an application to the deputy commissioner for release of PML-N President Shehbaz Sharif and his son Hamza Shahbaz on two-week parole.
In the application, the plaintiff took the stance that parole relief should be granted to the Opposition Leader in the National Assembly Shehbaz Sharif and the Opposition Leader in the Punjab Assembly Hamza Shehbaz on humanitarian grounds.
The applicant said that there is no bigger loss in this world than the passing away of one’s mother; therefore, Shehbaz Sharif and Hamza Shahbaz should be released immediately so that they can pay their respect to the departed soul.
He said that people will visit them from across the country to condole the death of Begum Shamim Akhtar.
Earlier on Sunday, the mother of former premier Nawaz Sharif and Punjab former chief minister Shehbaz Sharif passed away in London after a prolonged illness. This tragic news was announced on Twitter by Pakistan Muslim League-N (PML-N) leader Atta Tarrar.
