Accountability Court summons Nawaz Sharif, sons on Sept 19

ISLAMABAD (Sarzameen News)- Accountability Court has summoned ex-prime minister Nawaz Sharif and his sons Hassan and Hussain Nawaz on September 19 in Flagship Investments reference filed by National Accountability Bureau (NAB) over alleged corruption.

According to details, they have been summoned by the court for the hearing of reference pertaining to one of their United Kingdom-based companies named Flagship Investment Limited.

Earlier, the national anti-graft watchdog filed four references against members of the Sharif family and the finance minister in compliance with the Supreme Court verdict in the Panamagate case.

Three of four references were returned after court registrar Ahmed Mushtaq Qureshi found technical errors in them and directed the NAB to file them after rectifying the errors. The references returned back were about the Sharif family’s flats in a posh London neighborhood, Al-Azizia Steel Mill and owning assets disproportionate to the known source of income.

Three references were filed under Section 9A of NAB Ordinance 1999 along with its 14 sub-clauses, which is about transferring assets through illegal means.

Section 31A has also been incorporated in a reference against deposed PM’s daughter Maryam Nawaz for impeding the probe into the family’s offshore properties, who could face imprisonment for three years.

Another reference was filed against Finance Minister Ishaq Dar in compliance with the Supreme Court’s landmark verdict in the Panamagate case under Section 14C for possessing assets beyond the known sources of his income.

A five-judge bench of Supreme Court of Pakistan on July 28 announced a judgment in Panamagate case, disqualifying Nawaz Sharif as Prime Minister.
