Former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and his two sons, Hussain and Hasan, are expected to appear before the National Accountability Bureau’s (NAB) Lahore office today.
Sharif family was summoned to file their replies today pertaining to the NAB reference against them.
According to sources, a heavy contingent of security officials was deployed at the site before the former premier’s appearance.
As a result of the appearance of Sharif family, hearing of other minor cases has been halted.
However, Sharif family sources had informed on Thursday that Hasan and Hussain have not yet received any notification for appearance before the accountability bureau.
A family member said, “we have learnt about the NAB notice only in the news, no communication [has] been made till now.”
Sources reveal that PM’s cousin Tariq Shafi and Finance Minister Ishaq Dar have also been summoned today.
Moreover, NAB also wrote a letter to the excise and taxation department asking for details on assets and cars registered in the name of Ishaq Dar. Excise and taxation department has been asked to submit details by August 21.
Alongside this, the Volume X of the Joint Investigation Team (JIT), which probed former PM’s assets, has also been handed over to NAB. The accountability bureau has also decided to use the services of JIT’s members Wajid Zia and Irfan Mangi.
A letter has also been written to the government of Saudi Arabia to get more details of the assets of Sharif family, revealed sources.
