Reacting to the PML-N’s celebrations after the release of Hamza Shahbaz on bail from Kot Lakhpat Jail on Saturday, Information and Broadcasting Minister Shibli Faraz sought to give the party a heartwarming reminder that the party’s supremo Nawaz Sharif is still at large and will have to return. To pakistan
“Hamza Shahbaz should ask his fugitive uncle to return to Pakistan,” Faraz said in a Twitter post.
Criticizing Hamza, he said the PML-N leaders were “behaving as if they had been acquitted”.
The minister remarked, “You are still on bail and you are still reconciling your release as if you have been acquitted.”
“You discuss the court case in front of the media, not in front of the media,” he added.
In further criticism of the party and its rule over the country, Faraz said the party “bankrupted Pakistan” and “pocketed” in the process.
“Those who ruthlessly sank their teeth into people’s money are today claiming that not a single penny of corruption was found against them,” the minister said.
He added that those who “set the price of eggs and chickens in their era” are making “long claims” today.
Talking about Maryam and Hamza, he said that the elders of his family had “promoted a culture of corruption” and “destroyed the morals of the country”.
Hamza Shahbaz was released today after spending 20 months in jail in connection with a money laundering investigation.
His release was ordered by Accountability Court Duty Judge Akmal Khan after confirmation of bail bonds submitted by the PML-N leader.
A two-judge bench of the apex court, after hearing his plea, on Wednesday granted him bail by the Lahore High Court (LHC).
His application was granted and he was ordered to post two sureties of Rs. 10 million.
The PML-N leader was arrested by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on June 11, 2019, after the LHC rejected his interim bail in the Ramzan Sugar Mills and money laundering cases.
