An accountability court (AC) on Saturday summoned Shehbaz Sharif and his son Hamza Shehbaz in Ramzan Sugar Mills case on June 11.
The AC has summoned both the father and son duo by issuing a three-page written order. The court has observed a long-pending absence of the accused. The court order said that Hamza Shehbaz, Leader of the Opposition in the Punjab Assembly, could not be produced in the case hearing due to precautionary measures today.
The court ordered the Superintendent Jail and the SSP Headquarters to produce Hamza Shehbaz in the Ramzan Sugar Mills case next hearing on June 11 at any cost. “In case of non-compliance of the court order, concerned officials have to face legal action,” the court warned.
The court also directed, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) President Shehbaz Sharif, to appear in person for indictment in the next hearing of the case on June 11.
The NAB has filed a reference accusing former Punjab chief minister Shehbaz Sharif, his son Hamza Shehbaz and others for misusing authority by sanctioning the construction of a bridge to facilitate the sugar mills.
Shehbaz and Hamza have been accused of fraudulently causing a Rs 213 million loss to the national exchequer.
