SUNDAY TIMES LAHORE: The Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz  leader will likely appear before a LHC bench that will hear his bail petition.

LHC Chief Justice Sardar Shamim Ahmed had earlier on April 6 barred the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) from arresting Hamza. Subsequently, a NAB team which had laid siege to PML-N President Shehbaz Sharif’s Model Town residence to arrest his son had to leave without Hamza.

The chief justice granted interim bail to Hamza until April 8 (Monday) so that he would be able to approach the bench concerned for the hearing of a bail plea he had filed on April 4.

On Saturday afternoon, the NAB team had to leave the Model Town residence of Shehbaz Sharif without arresting his son Hamza after over five-hour long standoff. According to a NAB spokesman, the raiding team was called back after the high court granted interim relief to the accused.
