Court adjourns Ramzan Sugar Mills, Ashiana cases till May 11

Lahore (Staff Report/Agencies): An accountability court on Monday adjourned the hearing in the Ramzan Sugar Mills and Ashiana-e-Iqbal Housing cases till May 11.


Opposition leader in the Punjab Assembly Hamza Shehbaz appeared before the court. The cases, however, could not be heard as the judge was on leave.

The court had accepted PML-N president Shehbaz Sharif’s application seeking exemption from personal appearance until May 8 as he was abroad for medical treatment.

The father-son duo were indicted in the Ramzan Sugar Mills case earlier this month. The National Accountability Bureau in February had filed a reference against the two alleging that the former chief minister of Punjab misused his authority by using public funds for the construction of a bridge to facilitate the Ramzan mills, owned by his sons.

The PML-N president was earlier indicted in the Ashiana scheme case.
