An accountability court (AC) in Lahore on Wednesday exempted Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif and Punjab Chief Minister Hamza Shehbaz from attending today’s hearing of a money laundering case against them, reported 24NewsHD TV channel. 

Chaudhry Nawaz Advocate, counsel for both Shehbaz and Hamza, told Judge Naseem Ahmed Virk of AC-II that while the prime minister was busy in Islamabad due to the National Assembly’s (NA) session, Hamza, on the other hand, could not appear because he had to attend the Punjab Assembly’s budget session. 

On the other hand, lawyers of Shehbaz and Hamza will shortly start giving arguments in the favour of granting to their clients permanent exemption from appearance in the court.
