Opposition leader Shahbaz Sharif faces another setback

LAHORE – Accountability court on Tuesday has declared PML-N president Shehbaz Sharif’s wife Nusrat Shahbaz as proclaimed offender in money laundering case.

Judge Jawadul Hassan extended judicial remand of Shehbaz and his son Hamza Shehbaz until December 12. The court observed that Nusrat Shehbaz was repeatedly summoned but she didn’t turn up.

During the hearing, the judge said the 30-day deadline that was given to Nusrat Shahbaz to appear before the court has expired.

Accused have to present arguments on the testimonies of National Accountability Bureau’s (NAB) witnesses by themselves now, the judge remarked.

on the occasion, Shehbaz Sharif complained to judge that he is not being provided with medical facilities despite the fact that he is a cancer patient.

The judge said the court had ordered for a physiotherapist to be provided to the PML-N leader to tend him, to which Shehbaz said the court’s order was not complied with.
