Nawaz Sharif, sons might not appear before NAB today

Rizwan Tabassum—AFP

Ousted Pakistan prime minister Nawaz Sharif and his two sons will appear before National Accountability Bureau (NAB) for interrogating them in money laundering and graft cases.

Sharif family was summoned to file their replies today pertaining to the NAB reference against them. However, the PML-N not yet decided if the family members would appear before the investigators today. But me, Shahbaz, my sons and daughter appeared before the JIT.

NAB has assigned and dedicated 14 officers to investigate the allegations and consequently file four separate references against Sharif family members in light of the SC judgment, a media report suggests.

References need to be filed against Nawaz Sharif, Hassan Nawaz, Hussain Nawaz, Maryam Nawaz, Capt (retd) Safdar and Ishaq Dar.by September 8.

It is pertinent to note here that the Panamagate JIT formed on the orders of Supreme Court, in its final report, had said that Hussain Nawaz failed to produce any evidence or means establishing his personal capacity of meeting SAR 90.4 million equity requirements as his share in the sale proceeds of Al Azizia Steel Company fell well short of this requirement.

However, Moon previously stated that Seoul will continue to work with Washington to counter security threats. It would be a test of the Hwasong-12, a new missile the country flight-tested for the first time in May.

Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif on Thursday made it clear that he had never sought anything from the Pakistan People's Party (PPP) and he had no intention to demand anything from it. Nawaz Sharif stated that he respectfully bid adieu to Asif Ali Zardari, did not victimise political opponents and even faced the sit-in with patience.

The fourth reference has to be filed against Finance Minister Ishaq Dar for possessing assets and funds disproportionate to his known sources of income. The JIT was also provided with records of the Sharif family's banking transactions.

He said Sharif has already expressed his concern over a Supreme Court judge who is supervising the NAB's investigation against him, fearing that he (judge) will ensure adverse verdict against him in the accountability court. He contended that he had not hid his salary in his nomination papers for the 2013 polls - the ground on which he was disqualified for not being honest and trustworthy.

Moreover, direction to the trial court to decide the references within six months is likely to prejudice Mr Sharif's case before the accountability court, especially when the Constitution does not confer the Supreme Court any jurisdiction to superintend and oversee the proceedings of subordinate judiciary, the petition maintained.
