ISLAMABAD: The accountability court summoned on Thursday former prime minister Nawaz Sharif and his family members on September 19 with regards to two corruption references filed against them by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB).
Reports said the former premier, his sons Hussain and Hasan have been summoned with regards to the Al Azizia Steel Mills reference whereas the former three, along with Nawaz’s daughter Maryam and son-in-law MNA Capt(retd) Safdar have been summoned on the same date in light of the London flats reference.
The court, on Wednesday, had already summoned Nawaz and his two sons on September 19 as well in light of the flagship companies reference.
NAB, in total, has filed three references against the Sharif family and one against Finance Minister Ishaq Dar in the accountability court in light of the Supreme Court’s orders in the Panama Papers case verdict of July 28.
According to a copy of summons of the flagship companies case, the former premier has been asked to appear in person at 9am on September 19. It says that Nawaz’s presence is necessary to respond to the charges against him.
Moreover, the summons have been sent to Nawaz Sharif’s homes in Raiwind and Model Town. NAB had filed on September 8 three references against the Sharif family and one against Dar.
Moreover, on Wednesday, NAB resubmitted all four references in the accountability court after the court registrar had raised objections over technical errors present in the references.
The NAB spokesman said: “The references regarding Al Azizia Steel Mills/Hill Metal Company (Jeddah) and Avenfield Properties London have been received by the registrar and issued receipts to NAB.”
