LAHORE: An accountability court in Lahore has on Tuesday summoned Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) President Shehbaz Sharif in person on January 7.
AC Judge Amjad Nazir issued written orders. The court remarked that Shehbaz Sharif is consistently absent from hearing of Ashiana-e-Iqbal Housing Scheme scam case which is hampering the proceedings.
The court gave Shehbaz Sharif last chance to ensure his presence during the next hearing.
The judge had pressed charges against Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) President Shehbaz Sharif and other accused during the hearing.
However, Shehbaz Sharif and other accused had denied the charges and termed the reference filed against him as false.
It is important here to mention that ten suspects including Shehbaz Sharif have been indicted in the case.
