Production orders for Hamza Shahbaz, Salman Rafique issued

Lahore (Staff Report): The Punjab Assembly Speaker has issued production orders for Opposition Leader Hamza Shahbaz and Khawaja Salman Rafique to attend Friday’s budget session.


On Tuesday, the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) arrested Hamza Shehbaz after the PML-N leader withdrew his applications for bail in two corruption cases.

A two-member bench comprising Justice Mazhar Ali Akbar Naqvi and Justice Shahid Waheed Khan heard the petitions of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader, seeking interim bails in the Ramzan Sugar Mills case and assets beyond means sources of income cases.

Salman is also in NAB custody in the Paragon Housing case. He was arrested on December 11, along with his brother PML-N MNA Khawaja Saad Rafique.
