Assets beyond means Case: Hamza Shehbaz ’s judicial remand extended till May 7

An accountability court extended the judicial remand of Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PMLN) leader Hamza Shehbaz Sharif till May 7 in assets beyond means case.
Justice Jawad-ul-Hassan presided over proceedings and awarded the accused an extension of 14 days in his judicial remand.
Leader of the opposition in Punjab assembly was not presented in the court due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
The court has ordered authorities to present Hamza Shehbaz Sharif before the court in the next hearing slated for May 4.
Justice Jawad-ul-Hassan also ordered the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) to file a reference against Sharif, sooner rather than later.
According to the NAB, the PML-N leader is accused of accumulating assets through unfair means and was involved in money laundering through his servants.
It must be noted that the NAB had arrested PML-N leader in the assets beyond income case on June 11, 2019, after LHC had turned down his applications for extension in interim bail.
