ISLAMABAD: National Accountability Bureau (NAB) is mulling to take unilateral action against former prime minister Nawaz Sharif if he continues to remain absent, revealed the NAB sources.
It has been learnt that the non-appearance of ousted premier and his sons is also a contempt of court. NAB has clarified that the notices were received by the security staff of Sharif family, and it has documented proofs of that. Furthermore, NAB has also decided to record the statements of the members of Joint Investigation Team (JIT) before filing the reference against Sharif family. Sources have revealed that a petition has also been submitted in the Supreme Court (SC) of Pakistan in this regard. It is worth mentioning here that the ousted prime minister Nawaz Sharif and his sons Hussain Nawaz and Hassan Nawaz were on Friday (yesterday) summoned by NAB to appear in Lahore office to record their statements in Azizia Steel Mills case, but they did not do so.
