ISLAMABAD: An Accountability Court (AC) permitted National Accountability Bureau (NAB) to meet convicted Nawaz Sharif in jail for investigation related to personal use of bullet proof vehicles imported for South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) conference 2016.
AC-II Judge Arshad Malik heard the case.
NAB pleaded that 34 bullet proof vehicles were purchased from Germany and imported without paying duty for the guests of SAARC conference.
However, 20 vehicles were used in the motorcade which had been kept in his and his daughter Maryam Nawaz’s personal use.
It further said the anti graft body had recorded the statement of Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, ex-principal secretary to prime minister Fawad Hassan Fawad and other officials.
NAB said the foreign office officials had misused their powers in matter of bullet proof vehicles.‑Reuters
