Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Hamza Shehbaz has been released from jail here on Saturday.
According to the details, Hamza Shahbaz has been granted bail on the orders issued by the Accountability Court (AC) judge Akmal Khan after the surety bonds submitted by the PML-N were verified.
In this regard, Minister for Information and Broadcasting Shibli Faraz said that Shibli Faraz has said that those who mercilessly looted the national exchequer in the past are stubbornly claiming today that no corruption has been proven against them.
In his tweets today, he said these elements filled their pockets at the cost of the people of the country.
The Information Minister said the elders of Hamza Sharif and Maryam Nawaz promoted the culture of corruption in the country, destroying the nation’s morality.
He said that Hamza Sharif has been released on bail and not acquitted. He said Hamza Sharif should discuss matters pertaining to his case before the court.
Earlier, Hamza Shahbaz’s bail was approved by the LHC on Wednesday. He was asked to submit a Rs 10 million surety bond.
The leader was taken into the custody of the National Accountability Bureau after the Lahore High Court dismissed his plea for pre-arrest bail. This happened on June 11, 2019.
A reference was filed against Hamza Shehbaz and 10 others on August 20, 2020.
