LAHORE: The accountability court in Lahore on Tuesday extended the judicial remand of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Hamza Shehbaz till November 28 in Ramzan Sugar Mills case.
The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) presented the Leader of the Opposition in the Punjab Assembly Hamza before the court.
During the hearing, AC Judge Amjad Nazeer expressed resentment and directed Hamza Shehbaz to stand in the witness box in every hearing.
The judge remarked: “You have not come to the court to hold a press conference.”
To this, Hamza said in anger: “How are you talking to me? Your way of talking is not appropriate.”
“If you want to meet people then meet them outside the court. Don’t ignore the court’s dignity,” Judge Amjad said to Hamza.
The court also accepted the exemption plea of Opposition Leader in National Assembly and PML-N president Shehbaz Sharif.
After hearing the arguments, the court extended the judicial remand of Hamza Shehbaz till Nov 28.
Hamza Shehbaz is under the NAB’s custody since June 11 in cases related to Ramzan Sugar Mills, money laundering and owning assets beyond means.
