NAB sends summons to Sharifs in London

ISLAMABAD, SEPT 23 (DNA) – National Accountability Bureau has sent court summons to the Sharif family’s London residence, asking the Sharif family members to appear before the court in a NAB reference.

An accountability court has recently issued summon of Nawaz Sharif, Hassan Nawaz, Hussain Nawaz and Capt (retd) Muhammad Safdar to appear before it in the NAB reference.

Earlier, NAB had pasted the court summons on the gate of the Sharif family’s Lahore residence. NAB had also sent the summons to London, asking the Pakistan High Commission officials to ensure that the summons reaches to the Sharifs.

It is pertinent to mention here that on September 19, an accountability court reissued summon of the family to appear before the court on September 26. During the court proceedings, NAB prosecutors had told the court that they were not allowed entry in the Sharif family’s multiple homes and had to hand the summons to the guards.

The prosecutors had also said that earlier, Hassan and Hussain Nawaz had refused to receive the summons. Last month, the Sharif family and Finance Minister Ishaq Dar had chosen not to appear before NAB in different cases.
