PoliticsShahbaz Sharif and Hamza Shahbaz acquitted in Money Laundering Case

LAHORE, Pakistan: A Special Central Court in Lahore on Wednesday acquitted Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif and his son Hamza Shahbaz in the Rs 16 billion Money Laundering Case.

The decision reserved earlier in the day was announced by the Special Central Court Judge Ijaz Hassan Awan, accepting the appeal filed by both the accused for their acquittal.

   

The Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) had registered the Money Laundering Case against them in November 2020.

Earlier in the day, their lawyer Amjad Parvez filed a plea for exemption from appearance in the Court on their behalf. He argued that Shahbaz Sharif couldn’t appear before the Court because of his official engagements while Hamza Sharif had health issues.

Amjad Parvez argued the the FIA filed a malicious case and that no money was transacted into the account of Hamza Shahbaz.

The lawyer took the position that written arguments had also been submitted in the Court, and said that none of the FIA witnesses had mentioned the name of his clients. He alleged that the investigating officer tried to distort the statements of the witnesses.
