PM Shehbaz, Punjab CM Appear Before Court

LAHORE: Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif and his son Hamza Shahbaz appeared in the special court (Central-I) for their hearing in the Rs16 billion money-laundering case today.

The father-son duo was accompanied by Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah amid tight security around the court. 

Once the hearing started, Judge Ijaz Hassan Awan complained that due to the security of the prime minister others coming to the court had to suffer.

Replying to his complaint, PM Shehbaz mentioned that he has asked his security not to stop anybody. “I am appearing before the court in order to maintain its dignity and follow the laws of the country,” the premier added.

The presiding judge of the special court (Central-I) summoned the deputy superintendent of police (DSP) and station house officer (SHO); however, both officials denied appearing in the court. At this, Justice Ijaz noted that the police do not adhere to the orders of the court.
