Even before becoming the Prime Minister of Pakistan, Shahbaz Sharif is seen in trouble. The opposition is considering him as the prime ministerial candidate. His son Hamza Shahbaz is also facing a money laundering case. In this case, Hamza may have to appear in a special court of Pakistan on Monday.

A special court of the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) on April 4 asked Shahbaz and Hamza to appear on Monday, April 11, to be charged in the 14 billion Pakistani rupee money laundering case. Shahbaz Sharif’s candidature for the PM post has been the subject of much debate since the no-confidence motion against Imran Khan was passed in Pakistan’s National Assembly late on Saturday night.

Will seek exemption from personal hearing

Shahbaz’s lawyer Amjad Parvez said on Sunday that his client would file an application in the special court on Monday seeking exemption from personal appearance. Parvez said Shahbaz Sharif will contest for the prime minister’s post in Islamabad on Monday. Therefore the court would be requested to adjourn the proceedings.

The opposition alleges

Imran’s party has become an attacker on Shahbaz, surrounded by allegations of money laundering. Imran Khan’s Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf party leader and former information minister Fawad Chaudhry tweeted that the head of the FIA ​​prosecution in Lahore was directed not to appear in court in the Shahbaz case so that the accused’s proceedings could be stayed. . However, a senior FIA official in Lahore has denied the allegations.
