Hamza Shehbaz likely to be arrested on April 17: Shahzad Akbar

Special Assistant to the Prime Minister (PM) on Accountability Shahzad Akbar said on Monday that Opposition Leader in Punjab Assembly will likely to be arrested on April 17 after cancellation of his interim bail.

Expressing his views, during an exclusive interview with 92 News programme “Ho Kya Raha hai”, Shahzad Akbar hoped that the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) will select the best prosecutor in case against Shehbaz Sharif family and Hamza Shehbaz.

The special assistant to PM once again criticized the Lahore High Court’s decision of granting pre-arrest bail to Hamza Shebaz.

Shahzad Akbar said that Hamza Shehbaz got a unusual relief from the court.  “The laws of corruption watchdog body are liable for everyone so the pre-arrest bail cannot be granted for such a long period,” he added.
