During the hearing, the court declared four members of Shehbaz Sharif’s family and other absent accused declared as absconders in money laundering case.

The court also extended the judicial remand of the opposition leader in National Assembly and his son for further seven days and ordered to present Shehbaz and Hamza before court on December 30. The court also sought a medical report of Shehbaz Sharif from the jail superintendent.

On November 11, an accountability court indicted PML-N President Shehbaz Sharif and his family members in a money laundering case.

The Jail authorities presented Shehbaz and his son before court as it resumed hearing.

The court indicted Shehbaz Sharif, his son Hamza and other accused, while Shehbaz and other accused denied the charges and opted to contest.

All the accused in the case pleaded not guilty. Shehbaz Sharif, while rejecting allegations of the anti-graft watchdog, said that he is being politically victimized. Admin Judge Jawadul Hassan indicted all the accused and summoned NAB witnesses to record their statements.

Earlier, Opposition Leader Shehbaz Sharif and Hamza Shehbaz were brought to the court in an armored vehicle and large number of personnel of police were deployed to avoid any untoward incident.

On September 29, Shahbaz was arrested by NAB after the Lahore High Court (LHC) rejected his bail in the money laundering case.

The PML-N president was previously arrested on October 5, 2018 in another case pertaining to Ramzan Sugar Mills and Ashiana Housing Scheme. He was in the anti-graft watchdog’s custody when the inquiry into money laundering was authourised.
