Sessions Central Court’s judge Ijaz Hassan Awan issued the written decision consisting of twenty-two pages.

The written decision stated that no clues have been found for the charges of unlawful use of authority and bribe against the PM and Punjab CM. Further investigation is required over the allegations of corruption, bribing and unlawful use of authority.

The Investigation officer has not till present written in the police diary that they require to arrest the accused for investigation, it added.

According to the decision, the prosecution has not been able to provide any evidence proving that Shehbaz Sharif was a shareholder or director of the Ramzan Sugar Mills. Hamza Shahbaz has been the CEO of Ramzan Sugar Mills, but FIA provided no evidence proving that all the illegal accounts were opened at his behest.
