A banking court here in the City on Saturday extended the interim bail of PML-N President Shehbaz Sharif and his son Hamza Shehbaz in the money laundering case till October 30.
Both leader of the opposition in the National Assembly Shehbaz Sharif and opposition’s leader in the Punjab Assembly Hamza Shehbaz appeared in the court amid stringent security.
On the occasion, the PML-N workers also gathered outside the court and chanted slogans in favour of their leaders.
At the previous hearing, the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) submitted five boxes containing evidence against Shehbaz Sharif and Hamza Shehbaz in the banking court.
During the proceedings, the court asked FIA how much time it needs to complete the investigation.
Responding to the court, the FIA Director again accused the PML-N leaders of not cooperating in the investigation and said that the accused are even saying that they don’t have any knowledge of funds that were transferred to their personal accounts.
The director further informed the court that several bank accounts were opened in names of lower staff of Ramzan Sugar Mills.
Responding to accusations of the agency, Shehbaz Sharif said that he was hurt by the statement of the FIA officer as his lawyers responded to all questions of the investigation agency.
