NAB gives a worst blow to former CM Shahbaz Sharif and family
ISLAMABAD - The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) gives a worst blow to former CM Shahbaz Sharif and family over corruption reference.
NAB on Tuesday issued orders to freeze assets owned by PML-N President Shehbaz Sharif and his sons Hamza Shehbaz and Salman Shehbaz in different cities including Lahore, Chiniot, Haripur and Abbottabad, citing corruption offences.
The orders will remain in place for 15 days, during which NAB will file an application in the relevant accountability court for their confirmation.
The anti-corruption watchdog issued six orders, each listing separate properties acquired by Shehbaz, Hamza and Salman — all three of whom are nominated in corruption cases being probed by NAB.
According to the bureau, the evidence collected against the three PML-N leaders so far had provided NAB with "reasonable grounds for believing" that Shehbaz, Salman and Hamza were involved in "offences of corruption and corrupt practices".
