LAHORE: An accountability court on Thursday sought arguments on a plea moved by Punjab Assembly opposition leader Hamza Shehbaz and his mother Nusrat Shehbaz seeking directives for the authorities concerned to unfreeze their assets.

The court adjourned the hearing until February 4 when lawyers representing the applicants will forward more arguments.

Hamza and his mother stated in their plea that the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) froze their assets in utter disregard for the actual facts as assets can not be frozen at a time when the investigation process is still underway.

They requested the accountability court to review its verdict of allowing the national graft buster to freeze the assets.
