Lahore (Staff Report): The Lahore High Court (LHC) on Wednesday allowed Leader of the Opposition in the Punjab Assembly Hamza Shahbaz to travel abroad for a period of 10 days.
Hamza had petitioned the court that Interior Ministry had placed his name on the Exit Control List (ECL).
Last year, the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) barred Opposition Leader in the Punjab Assembly Hamza Shehbaz Sharif from leaving the country.
Hamza was offloaded from a plane of Qatar Airways, 620, bound for Doha.
Hamza, along with his younger brother Salman Shehbaz, is facing the NAB’s investigations regarding assets beyond income and had sought protective bail from the LHC.
An accountability court granted a one-day transit remand of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) president Shehbaz Sharif to attend the National Assembly (NA) session.
A request was submitted in the NAB court on behalf of the jail superintendent for Shehbaz's transit remand.
The plea stated that the opposition leader has to be taken to Islamabad to attend the session of the NA.
Approving the jail superintendent's request, the court granted one-day transit remand of the PML-N president.
