Punjab Assembly speaker issues production orders for Hamza, Salman


LAHORE: Punjab Assembly Speaker Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi has issued production orders for provincial opposition leader Hamza Shehbaz and PML-N lawmaker Khawaja Salman Rafique for the budget session scheduled to be held today.

Hamza is in the custody of National Accountability Bureau (NAB) in connection to the Ramzan Sugar Mills, Saaf Pani Company and money laundering cases. The PML-N vice president was arrested after the Lahore High Court rejected his request for interim bail on Tuesday.

While the corruption watchdog arrested Salman along with his brother Khawaja Saad Rafique in December last for their purported involvement in the Paragon Housing Society scam.
