Hamza Shehbaz reaches accountability court
LAHORE: Leader of the Opposition in Punjab Assembly Hamza Shehbaz arrived in an accountability court on Tuesday in connection with the Ramzan sugar mill case.
On April 9, former Punjab chief minister Shehbaz Sharif and Hamza Shehbaz were indicted by the court in the Ramzan Sugar Mills reference.
Judge Najamul Hassan read out charges against them. The father-son duo pleaded innocence.
The judge allowed Shehbaz and Hamza to leave the court after framing charges against them.
“I saved hundreds of billions of rupees of the government over 10 years,” the PML-N president told judge in his defence, adding how could he have used the national kitty for the construction of a drain.
The judge promised fair trial. “These are just allegations against you, which are yet to be proved,” the judge said.
