According to reports in Pakistani media, the watchdog is expected to file an application with the Interpol for the arrest of Sharif’s two sons.
Citing NAB sources, Pakistan media platforms have reported that that anti-graft watchdog has taken a decision to bring home former Punjab chief minister Shahbaz Sharif’s son-in-law, Ali Imran. the decision was reportedly taken at a high-level meeting of NAB’s executive board. The said meeting took place last Wednesday and was presided over by Justice (retd) Javed Iqbal, chairman of the bureau.
The Accountability Court has declared Dar a ‘proclaimed absconder’ citing his failure to appear before the court in a case pertaining to assets beyond income. In December last Hassan and Hussain Nawaz too were declared proclaimed offenders by the Court in the NAB case that has been filed against the Sharif family.
Various cases against the family pertain to Hill Metal Establishment, Al-Azizia Steel Mills, Avenfield property and the Flagship Investment Ltd. While Sharif and his sons have been accused in all the three references, his daughter, and son in law are accused in the Avenfield case.
