Hamza Granted 14-day Extension For Stay in London

LAHORE: The Lahore High Court on Monday accepted request of PML-N leader Hamza Shehbaz to grant a 14-day extension for his stay in London.

The LHC judge Farukkh Irfan Khan heard the Hamza Shehbaz petition seeking extension in London.

In his petition, Hamza Shehbaz had sought an extension so he could stay with his new-born daughter who has been diagnosed with a serious cardiac issue and must undergo surgery.

Hamza Shehbaz arrived in London on February 3 after the Lahore High Court gave the Punjab Assembly Opposition Leader one-time permission to leave the country. He had initially been granted permission for a period of ten-days and his name was removed from the Exit Control List.

Hamza is being probed by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) into the Ramzan Sugar Mills and holding assets beyond his known sources of income.
