Nawaz Sharif 'refuses' to appear before NAB in Al-Azizia, Flagship cases

Nawaz Sharif 'refuses' to appear before NAB in Al-Azizia, Flagship cases”

The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on Saturday summoned former Pakistan prime minister Nawaz Sharif to record his statement in two supplementary references on Azizia Steel Mills and Flagship investments which are to be filed soon.

Sources said the NAB has made a decision to keep interview of Hussain Nawaz Sharif as record in the supplementary reference.

The references against the Sharif family pertain to the Al-Azizia Steel Mills, offshore companies including Flagship Investment Ltd, and Avenfield properties of London.

The NAB also added that the two supplementary references, which are to be filed will carry the script of an interview given to a private TV channel by Sharif's son Hussain Nawaz.

It is to mention here that former prime minister had not appeared before the NAB Lahore when he was summoned in Avenfield properties case. NAB, however, chose to make the Pemra's record a part of a supplementary reference.

It filed the reference after obtaining additional evidence about the Avenfield flats under the mutual legal assistance (MLA).

However, spokesperson for Government of Punjab has falsified the claims, saying the provincial government is cooperating with NAB on all fronts. The allegation was contested by the government.

NAB Chairperson Justice (retd) Javed Iqbal on February 8 took notice of Punjab government's reported noncooperation in providing the bureau the relevant records it had sought. If at all there was any issue the NAB officials should have contacted the government.

The chief then declared the Punjab government's reported noncooperation as a violation of law.
