Shehbaz Sharif calls money laundering allegations baseless
Shehbaz Sharif had called the allegations of money laundering and bribery unfounded. The lawyer for the Daily Mail had admitted not having enough evidence in the proceedings in the UK court, he added.
The NAB prosecutor said the London verdict had nothing to do with this case.
The president of the PML-N also submitted a letter of appreciation from the Chinese ambassador to the court to which the NAB prosecutor raised objections.
Hamza and Shehbaz Sharif indicted for money laundering
On November 11, 2020, Mian Shehbaz Sharif and his son Hamza Shehbaz Sharif were charged with money laundering by the court of accounts.
All of the defendants in the case have pleaded not guilty. Shehbaz Sharif, while dismissing the anti-transplant watchdog’s claims, said he was a political victim.
