Clubbing corruption references: Nawaz challenges NAB court's verdict in IHC

Clubbing references Nawaz challenges NAB court's verdict in IHC NAB submits compliance report to declare Nawaz's sons absconders

On Nov 8, Nawaz had accused the superior judiciary of being prejudiced against him, as the accountability court hearing corruption cases against the Sharif family had rejected an application filed by the disqualified premier for clubbing together the three references, and indicted him separately in each of the three references.

An accountability court on Tuesday adjourned the hearing to declare former prime minister Nawaz Sharif's sons, Hussain and Hassan, as proclaimed offenders over their perpetual absence from the trial proceedings in three references filed against them.

The notice asking the brothers to surrender and attend court had also been pasted outside the Sharifs' various residences and sent to London through the Foreign Office, he told the court. The court that the accounts possess $3992, 4272 Euros, 207 pounds and Rs382,381 in the four accounts respectively.

The prosecution team informed the court that the brothers own no properties in areas operated by the Lahore Development Authority and Defence Housing Authority.

Investigation officers of NAB recorded their statement and gave details of four bank accounts in the name of Hussain Nawaz.

The NAB prosecutor also asked the court to declare them proclaimed offenders as the time given them to ensure appearance in the court has expired.

The deputy prosecutor general also submitted a compliance report regarding the process of declaring them absconder.

The court has already issued non-bailable arrest warrants against the two brothers. He is likely to declare Hussain and Hassan as proclaimed offender tomorrow.

The NAB DPG asserted that the body had done its due diligence in attempting to get the two suspects to cooperate with the court, and now requested their properties be seized as they continued to avoid court.

Summons of the accused were also pasted on the walls of their house and court, he added.

Later, the court ordered the Securities and Exchange Commission of Pakistan (SECP) to freeze the assets of Hasan and Hussain.
