LAHORE (Dunya News) – Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif reached Lahore on Friday night on a three-day visit. The Prime Minister will appear before the special court hearing Rs16 billion money laundering case today (Saturday), Dunya News reported.
During the previous hearing, Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) had sought court’s permission to arrest Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif and Chief Minister of Punjab Hamza Shahbaz in money laundering case.
According to details, PM Shehbaz and CM Hamza appeared before the special court hearing Rs16 billion money laundering case against them.
Counsel of the PML-N leaders opposed FIA plea and argued the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) led government had filed the case with mala fide intent to target political opponents.
Hamza’s counsel argued that there is no rationale behind seeking arrest after challan has been submitted and this move shows mala fide intentions of the prosecutor.
FIA had also submitted a supplementary challan against PM Shehbaz,CM Hamza and others in money laundering case.
