‘Ashiana Housing case’, AC adjourns hearing till August 7
LAHORE: An Accountability Court of Lahore adjourned hearing of Ashiana Iqbal Housing scheme case against Pakistan Mulim League-Nawaz President Shehbaz Sharif till August 07.
National Accountability Bureau (NAB) produced Shehbaz Sharif, Fawad Hasan Fawad and other suspects in the Ashiana scandal before duty judge Wasim Akhter.
During the hearing, former Punjab Chief Minister slammed the anti-graft body for “presenting lies”.
However, the prosecution responded in opposition and claimed that the politician was attempting to waste the court’s time. After concluding proceedings, the court then put off the hearing.
Talking to journalists after appearing before the Accountability Court, Shehbaz reiterated that those who detected corruption in the scandal were the ones being accused.
