Hamza Shahbaz is to stay in jail a while longer. An accountability court extended on Thursday his judicial remand in the Ramzan Sugar Mills case.
The leader of the opposition in the Punjab Assembly, Hamza Shahbaz, appeared before the Lahore court on Thursday. His father, Shehbaz Sharif was in London and so could not attend.
Shehbaz’s lawyer submitted a request to excuse him from appearing. The court summoned NAB’s reply on it – the request has been attested by the Pakistani high commission, said Shehbaz’s lawyer.
During the hearing, Hamza was given a copy of the reference and the hearing was adjourned till December 12.
Hamza and Shehbaz both have been indicted in the case.
