June 22, 2021

LAHORE (92 News) – Opposition Leader in National Assembly (NA) Shehbaz Sharif appeared before the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) in sugar scandal case.

A four-member team of the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) quizzed the PML-N president at the agency’s Lahore office for more than an hour. According to the sources, the investigation team put as many as 20 questions to Shehbaz Sharif, out of which he could answer only four.

A large number of PML-N supporters gathered outside the FIA office to show solidarity to their leader. Strict security arrangements have been ensured on the occasion to avoid any untoward incident.

The opposition leader and his son Hamza Shehbaz Sharif have been accused of laundering Rs25 billion ill-gotten money using the Ramazan Sugar Mills and Al-Arabiya Sugar Mills.

On Monday, the sessions court granted interim bail to Opposition Leader in the National Assembly Shehbaz Sharif and Opposition Leader in the Punjab Assembly Hamza Shehbaz until July 10.

The court also sought a reply from the FIA on the next date of hearing. It also ordered the both leaders to submit surety bonds worth Rs one million each.

Talking to the media on Monday, PML-N spokesperson Attaullah Tarar said that why the FIA was being used unchecked. "The government's cheap tactics will not work," he added.
