Hamza Shahbaz remanded in NAB custody for 14 days

On Wednesday, the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) received 14 days of physical summons for the assets and money laundering case of the opposition leader of the Punjab Congress Hamza Shahbaz.

At the hearing, an anti-corruption watchdog told the responsible court that people without passports sent millions of dollars from Pakistani League League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader accounts.

On June 11, as if the responsible guard dog had arrested Hamza, he arrested Hamza in the same situation as Lahore High Court (LHO) in Thokar Niaz Baig, Lahore, refused to apply for a temporary bail extension.

At a hearing on June 11, Hamza defense lawyer Salman Butt insisted that a warrant of arrest could not be issued unless the investigation on the matter was completed, according to the NAB Bylaw.

He added that the investigation into the money laundering case in this case is still ongoing and his client is reconciling with the investigation team.

Judge Naqvi stated that the judgment would be made in accordance with the Constitution and that justice would be guaranteed.

Moreover, the prosecution filed details about the assets of the Shavaz Sharif family to the court.

"Billion rupees were added to the assets of the Shehbaz family, but Hamza was unable to provide details about the source of income."

Bench was unable to prove assets worth 380 million rupees in 2018 by NAB, while his assets amounted to 380 million rupees, money was laundered in Dubai and the United Kingdom, and 40 people laundered money.
