Shahbaz Sharif gets yet another relief from Court

LAHORE - An accountability court yesterday exempted former chief minister Shehbaz Sharif from personal appearance for a second time.

He was required to appear in connection with Ashiana-e-Iqbal Housing Scheme and Ramzan Sugar Mills case.

The former CM’s lawyer told the court that his client was in London in connection with his medical treatment and should be exempted for three weeks.

However, Hamza Shehbaz was present in the court and he marked his presence on the register.

Hamza Shehbaz, who is leader of the opposition in the Punjab Assembly, is due to appear before NAB Lahore today to answer questions from where an amount of about Rs 210 million had landed in the account of Ayesha Ahad, his former wife.

A questionnaire has already been given to him to enable him to answer the questions.

To reach source of the money in question, the NAB has adopted an interesting methodology.
