LAHORE: The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has stopped the Sharif family from the sale or transfer of its properties.
According to NAB officials, a letter, written with the approval of NAB DG Lahore, has been sent to Nawaz Sharif, his daughter Maryam, and sons Hussain and Hasan. The letter states that as per the National Accountability Ordinance 1999’s Section 23, Nawaz Sharif and his children are ordered to refrain from selling or transferring their properties.
The letter has been written in connection with the Avenfield properties of the Sharif family in London, over which a reference has been filed against them in the Islamabad Accountability Court.
The letter states that violation of NAB’s order would result in punishment according to the NAB law’s section 23-A.
The Sharif family is presently in London where Nawaz’s wife, Kulsoom, is undergoing treatment for lymphoma.
The family failed to appear in the Islamabad Accountability Court on September 19 with regards to three references filed against them by NAB in light of the Supreme Court’s Panama case judgment of July 28.
