An accountability court judge castigated former Punjab chief minister Usman Buzdar for failing to appear before the court in pre-arrest interim bail in assets beyond means case, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.
Accountability Court Judge Sheikh Sajjad conducted the proceedings on the bail petition of Usman Buzdar.
The judge noted that the petitioner and his counsel failed to arrive for the hearing on time.
During the proceeding, the attorney of Usman Buzdar stated that the former chief minister was suffering from coronavirus and he also submitted a medical report to the court.
“Do not think that the court is deaf and dumb. Corona report has been prepared from Dera Ghazi Khan hospital. This is the same hospital which was inaugurated by Usman Buzdar himself,” Judge Sheikh Sajjad remarked.
The counsel pleaded the court to grant one-day exemption to Buzdar from court appearance.
Buzdar must appear at the next hearing, otherwise his bail will be cancelled, the judge ordered.
The court extended his interim bail till April 24.
