NAB to submit additional supplementary references against Sharif family


ISLAMABAD: The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has decided to submit additional four supplementary references against the Sharif family in the accountability court. These references are being submitted following the collection of information from volume 10 pertaining to the family’s wealth in various foreign countries.

A high official of NAB revealed that prosecution department of NAB has accorded approval to submit further four supplementary references after perusal of the legal points. However, a formal approval has been given.

Sources said that former NAB chairman Qamar Zaman “dishonestly and deliberately committed blunders in the reference of corruption of billions of rupees against the Sharif family, so that the family might benefit.”

However, the current chairman has thoroughly reviewed the previous references and directed to remove the lacunas in the previous references.

According to sources, the four supplementary references will be filed against Hassan Nawaz, Hussain Nawaz, Maryam Nawaz, Nawaz Sharif and Capt (retd) Safdar.

These four further supplementary references are pertaining to their assets of billions of dollars in Saudi Arabia, UAE, Europe and UK. In this context, the prosecutor wing of NAB is reviewing the matter.

Following a final review, these four further supplementary references will be filed in the accountability court.
