Shehbaz, Hamza Get Pre-Arrest Bail

LAHORE: A session court on Monday approved pre-arrest bail of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) President Shehbaz Sharif and Opposition Leader in Punjab Assembly Hamza Shehbaz before their FIA appearance in a sugar scam case.

The lawyer of the PML-N president during the hearing at the session court sought a long delay on implementation on arrest orders and cited the ongoing session of the National Assembly as the reason.


The court ordered against the arrest of Hamza Shehbaz and Shehbaz Sharif before July 10 and directed them to submit two surety bonds with each amounting to Rs1 million.

The development came after PML-N President Shehbaz Sharif and Opposition Leader in Punjab Assembly Hamza Shehbaz on Sunday decided to appear before the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA).
