Shahbaz Sharif lands in hot waters

LAHORE – Pakistan Muslim League (N) President Shahbaz Sharif lands in hot waters over NAB reference.

National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has prepared reference against Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) president and Opposition Leader in the National Assembly (NA) Shehbaz Sharif in a case pertaining to Ashiana Housing scam.

NAB is likely to file the reference on November 24 in accountability court. The anti-graft watchdog’s team briefed NAB chairman Justice (retd.) Javed Iqbal about the reference.

NAB has accused Shehbaz Sharif of benefiting private individuals while misusing his authority.

It has been written in the reference that during his tenure as Chief Minister, Sharif illegally used the powers of PLDC board of directors.

In order to provide illegal profit to his desired company, the former CM allegedly cancelled the contract of the other coming on merit while collaborating with Fawad Hassan Fawad, says the reference.
