Hamza Shahbaz’s

LAHORE: The Lahore High Court (LHC) Wednesday extended the interim bail of the opposition leader in Punjab Assembly Hamza Shahbaz in three different NAB cases till May 28.
A two-judge bench comprising Justice Ali Baqar Najafi and Justice Sardar Ahmad Naeem heard the case today.
Hamza is being investigated for owning assets beyond his known sources of income, and alleged corruption in Ramzan Sugar Mills and the Punjab Saaf Pani Company.
The bench directed NAB to inform the court about the background of the cases against Hamza. The anti-corruption watchdog told the bench that Hamza, as well as his brother Salman and father Shahbaz Sharif, owned assets beyond their means.
The NAB explained that Salman’s frontmen were involved in money laundering through bank accounts belonging to Salman’s employees.
The court adjourned the hearing until May 28 and extended Hamza’s bail until that date.
