Court Declared Shahbaz’s Wife and Absent Accused Proclaimed Offenders

LAHORE: A Lahore accountability court on Thursday extended judicial remand of PML-N President Shehbaz Sharif and his son Hamza Shehbaz until December 3 in a money laundering case.

Jail authorities produced the father-son duo before the court in a bullet-proof vehicle as it resumed hearing.

Judge Jawadul Hassan declared Shehbaz’s wife Nusrat, son Salman, daughter Rabia Imran and son-in-law as proclaimed offenders over their perpetual absence from the trial proceedings.

The Judge noted that all the absconding accused were given one month’s time to show up in court but they didn’t.

Shehbaz’s lawyer complained to the judge that he was not provided with verified documents by prosecution witnesses, to which the NAB prosecutor replied that the record the defence counsel is objecting to belongs to his clients.

The court adjourned the hearing until December 3 when it will record statements of more witnesses.
