Lahore Accountability court has extended the judicial remand of Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PMLN) leader Hamza Shehbaz Sharif till August 10 in assets beyond means case.

According to the details, Accountability court of Lahore heard assets beyond means case against leader of the opposition in Punjab assembly.

However, Hamza Shahbaz was not presented in the court due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Justice Jawad-ul-Hassan presided over proceedings and awarded the accused an extension of 14 days in his judicial remand.

The NAB prosecutor presented a report in the court regarding filing reference against PML-N stalwart.

Justice Jawad-ul-Hassan in the previous hearing had ordered the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) to file a reference against Sharif, sooner rather than later.

The court was then adjourned till August 10.

NAB said Hamza Shehbaz is accused of accumulating assets through unfair means and was involved in money laundering through his servants.

Let it be known Earlier in February, the Lahore High Court (LHC) granted bail to Hamza Shahbaz in Ramzan Sugar Mills case.

The National Accountability Bureau arrested Leader of Opposition in the Punjab Assembly Hamza Shehbaz last year on June 11.

The two-member bench of the LHC headed by Justice Mazahir Ali Naqvi heard the plea.

As the hearing went underway, the LHC judge irked over NAB prosecutor after he had failed to tell the court about names of the directors working in Ramzan Sugar Mills.
