A special court will indict Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz President and Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly Shehbaz Sharif and his son and opposition leader in the Punjab Assembly Hamza Shehbaz on February 18 in money laundering case, reported Aaj News.
In December, the Federal Investigation Agency submitted a challan in a banking court against the PML-N president and his two sons, citing them as the main suspects in a Rs16 billion money laundering case.
The investigation team had found 28 benami accounts which were operated under Shehbaz and his house hold staff members' names from 2008 to 2018 — while the opposition leader was chief minister and Hamza was member of National Assembly.
The FIA had submitted the challan, comprising seven volumes and at least 4,000 pages, in the banking court in which 17 accused have been held responsible for the crime.
During the hearing of the case on Thursday, the court ordered that the accused be provided copies of challan and asked them to appear before the court on the indictment day.
Talking to media after hearing of the case, Hamza said the British court had acquitted Shehbaz in money laundering allegations.
