PML-N leader and Leader of the Opposition in the Punjab Assembly Hamza Shahbaz has been granted bail in the Ramzan Sugar Mills case. A two-judge Lahore High Court bench granted him bail in the case on Thursday morning but he won’t be released yet. He was arrested in two cases–the Ramzan Sugar Mill case and money laundering case.
Rana Sanaullah was granted bail because of the “lapses in the prosecution’s case”, according to the court verdict released on Thursday. The PML-N leader, however, argued that a false case was registered against him for political victimisation “as the petitioner being a vocal leader of the opposition was openly criticising the policies of the sitting government”, says the court document.
