LAHORE: An accountability court on Monday declared Salman Shehbaz a proclaimed absconder for his failure to appear before the National Accountability Bureau (NAB).
A NAB prosecutor told the court that the accountability watchdog had summoned Salman in connection with an inquiry into money laundering and possession of assets beyond known sources of income.
All the properties of the suspect, both movable and immovable, have been confiscated, said the prosecutor.
Salman Shehbaz was also unwilling to face the inquiry related to Chaudhry Sugar Mills, he added.
The prosecutor told the court that the suspect had escaped from Pakistan.
Last month, the prosecutor had informed the court that the NAB had issued six call-up notices to Salman Shahbaz, but he didn’t cooperate in the assets beyond means and money-laundering case and fled the country.
The prosecutor requested the court to order the confiscation of Salman’s properties.
Moreover, on August 5, the court had issued non-bailable arrest warrants for Salman and ordered the authorities to produce him before the court.
