Money laundering case: Hearing against Shehbaz, Hamza adjourned till Dec 11

LAHORE (92 News) – The hearing against Shehbaz Sharif and Hamza Shehbaz in the money laundering case was adjourned till December 11 on the request of the FIA.

Money laundering case against PML-N president Shehbaz Sharif and opposition leader in Punjab Assembly Hamza Shehbaz was heard in the Banking Crimes Court. The two leaders reached the court and marked their attendance.

Shehbaz Sharif stated that he had nothing to do with the case as this business belongs to his children. He said that the mill was given to him by his father which he had now given to his children. "I am neither a shareholder nor a director of this mill. Not a rupee of this mill came to my account. Mills of my children faced billions of rupees loss," he stated.

The court inquired whether he had anything to do with the case. Shehbaz Sharif said that it had something to do with this case and that is why this case has been framed.

The court asked the counsel of FIA how long the final report would be given, otherwise show cause would be issued to his team. On this, the counsel of FIA stated that the main accused of the case Muhammad Usman has been granted bail. "Account holders who received the money also did not receive the arrest warrant," he contended.

The court directed all the accused to join the investigation and adjourned the hearing till December 11.
