NAB to send two more notices to Sharif family
NAB to send two more notices to Sharif family: The National Accountability Bureau decided on Thursday to send two more notices to the Sharif family, after their persistent failure to show up before the institution in relation to the Panama case investigation. In light of the apex court’s decision, the NAB has started preparing the reference against the Sharifs. The notices sent in this regard summoned former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, Hasan Nawaz, Hussain Nawaz, and Maryam Nawaz before the NAB.
According to NAB officials, the institution had earlier decided not to issue more notices to the Sharif family after sending the third notice, however, it later on changed its decision.
The officials said that the Sharif family has presented two contradictory perspectives on the matter. First it asked that the NAB shouldn’t proceed due to the review petition submitted to the SC, afterwards the premier’s family alleged that the NAB is not functioning according to the law.
The officials added that the NAB is working according to the law and the allegations against it are baseless.
Nawaz Sharif, sons Hasan and Hussain and daughter Maryam Nawaz failed for the third time to appear before the NAB on Tuesday. Finance Minister Ishaq Dar, who was also summoned, did not show up at the bureau either.
After the failure of Sharif family members to appear, the NAB decided to prepare references against the former prime minister.
In its July 28 verdict, the Supreme Court had ruled to send references against Nawaz Sharif, his children Maryam, Hussain and Hasan, son-in-law Captain (retd) Safdar and Ishaq Dar to an accountability court.
In its order, the five-member-bench requested the chief justice of Pakistan to nominate a judge of the Supreme Court to supervise and monitor implementation of the judgment and oversee proceedings of NAB and the accountability court.
