ISLAMABAD: The accountability court hearing corruption cases against the Sharif family issued on Tuesday a second summons for the accused after they failed to appear at today's hearing.
As the hearing began, the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) submitted an implementation report in court with regards to the summons issued to the accused.
Judge Mohammad Bashir was informed by the NAB prosecutor that the family's security officer at their Lahore residence received the summons.
The NAB prosecutor informed the court that the security officer said Hussain and Hasan Nawaz had instructed him not to accept the summons. He added that the summons was sent to the correct address.
The judge remarked that the summons was for the suspects and not the security officer. "Don't just get rid of the task by delivering the summons to the security in-charge next time and get the job done," the judge observed.
He said this is a criminal, not a civil court. "The security officer's statement should be on record if the summons was given to him." he added.
