Suleman Shehbaz Declared ‘Innocent’ In Money Laundering Case By FIA

LAHORE: The Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) on Saturday informed a special court in Lahore that it had found no evidence against Suleman Shehbaz about money laundering charges amounting to Rs16 billion in the sugar scam case.

The FIA investigators submitted a challan in the special court central during the hearing of a bail plea filed by the son of Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif in the case.

As per the challan, the suspects – Suleman and Tahir Naqbi, were not involved in receiving kickbacks and had no link with the case, the judge remarked.

After reviewing the challan, the judge asked the suspects if they wanted to withdraw their bail petitions. To which, they took back the pleas for pre-arrest bail in the money laundering case.

Later, the court adjourned the hearing till Feb 4.
