The Leader of the Opposition in the Punjab Assembly and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Hamza Shahbaz on Tuesday is scheduled to appear before the Lahore High Court (LHC) for seeking an extension in his interim bail in Ramzan Sugar Mills, and money laundering and assets beyond means cases against him.
A two-member bench headed by Justice Muzahir Ali Akbar Naqvi will resume the hearing. Strict security arrangements have been made in and outside the high court before the arrival of Hamza Shahbaz and PML-N political workers would be kept away from the courtroom.
On the other hand, the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has constituted special teams for the arrest of Hamza, in case his bail applications are dismissed by the court. Three teams of the accountability watchdog would be present outside the court.
Police have ensured strict security arrangements outside the judicial complex and have blocked adjoining roads for routine traffic. The litigant public will be denied entry to the complex.
The NAB has been investigating into the PML-N leader’s alleged involvement in the money laundering case, and according to sources, he stands little chance of getting his bails extended in the cases.
All evidences found against Hamza have been included in a file as the NAB prosecutor will present his arguments for convincing the court that his arrest is critical for further investigation into in the case(s).
