An accountability court in Lahore has deferred the hearing of different cases against PML-N President Shehbaz Sharif and Leader of the Opposition Hamza Shehbaz, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

As both the leaders appeared before the court on Friday judge Naseem Ahmad Virk adjourned the hearing of the money laundering case to November 12 and of Ramazan Sugar Mills case and Aashiyna reference to November 16.

The court was requested to adjourn the hearing as Shehbaz Sharif’s main counsel Amjad Pervaiz caught dengue fever.

The court also summoned witnesses on the next hearing for recording their statements, saying under the new accountability ordinance their statements will be recorded as per the old mechanism until the new mechanism is arranged in the court for their video recording.

The security was tight as both the leaders appeared before the court amid the presence of the hundreds of supporters.
