LAHORE: Suleman Shehbaz, the son of Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif, and another individual were named as offenders in a multi-billion rupee money laundering case by a special court in Lahore.
Suleman and Tahir Naqvi were named as proclaimed criminals by the Lahore Special Court (Central-I) in the Rs 16 billion money laundering case, which also involves PM Shehbaz and Punjab Chief Minister Hamza Shahbaz.
While allowing the prime minister a one-time exemption from appearing before the court and instructing him to assure his presence at the next hearing, the special court judge also summoned the property information for Suleman and Naqvi.
The court also requested a copy of Malik Maqsood Ahmed’s death certificate, also known as “Maqsood chaprasi,” who passed away in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) last month. He was another suspect in the case. The hearing was then postponed until July 30 by the court.
