FIA decides against prosecuting PM Shehbaz, Hamza in Money Laundering case

Three days before a special Lahore court was set to frame charges against the PML-N leaders, the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) chose not to prosecute Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif and Punjab Chief Minister Hamza Shehbaz in the Rs16 billion money laundering case.

According to a written motion filed in court, the FIA director general (DG) urged Special Prosecutor Sikander Zulqarnain Saleem not to attend in court since the “accused in the case are going to be elected Prime Minister of Pakistan and Chief Minister of Punjab” via the investigating officer.
