AC summons Nawaz, sons on Sept 19

ISLAMABAD: The Islamabad Accountability Court summoned on Wednesday former prime minister Nawaz Sharif and his sons Hussain and Hasan on September 19.


The summons has been issued on the basis of the reference against Nawaz Sharif and his family regarding ownership of offshore companies that was filed by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB).

NAB had filed three references against the Sharif family and one against Finance Minister Ishaq Dar in the court in light of the Supreme Court’s directives in the Panama Papers verdict of July 28.

Moreover, on Wednesday, NAB resubmitted the reference in the accountability court after the court registrar had raised objections over technical errors present in the reference.

The remaining three references are being fixed by NAB and will be resubmitted to the court soon, according to sources.

Whereas according to sources Nawaz Sharif, family have refused to present themselves in front of accountability court, unless the matter relating to the review petition on Panama Verdict does not reach to final conclusion
