The court adjourned the hearing on the reference until May 31, with PM Shehbaz’s representative appearing before the court. Additionally, the court disposed of an application as Aziz withdrew his interim bail.

It should be noted that Aziz, along with PM Shehbaz, is among the several accused standing trial in the NAB reference related to money laundering, involving an amount exceeding Rs. 7 billion.

In a separate case filed in 2018 by the graft buster, NAB declared PM Shehbaz “innocent” regarding allegations of misuse of authority during his tenure as Punjab chief minister.

The case was related to a low-cost housing scheme, the Ashiana-e-Iqbal Housing Society, launched in Lahore in 2010. NAB found “no evidence” of corruption in the scheme’s contract.
