Two approvers against Shehbaz family in money laundering case seek bail

LAHORE: Two suspects who voluntarily agreed to become an approver in a money laundering case against Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly Shehbaz Sharif and other members of his family requested the Lahore High Court (LHC) to grant them bail, media reported.

Shahid Rafique and Aftab Mehmood moved a bail petition in the high court through their legal counsel in which they said that they have already recorded their confessional statement as approver against Shehbaz and members of his family.

In their statements, during the investigation, they admitted that they have helped Hamza Shehbaz and others in whitening the looted money.

They recorded the confessional statements before a judicial magistrate under Section 164 of the Code of Criminal Procedure (CrPC), in which they confessed to laundering millions of dollars for Hamza Shehbaz, Salman Shehbaz, and others by telegraphic transfers (TT).
