NAB submits report in AC declaring Hussain, Hasan Nawaz proclaimed offenders

Islamabad: The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) submitted its implementation report in the accountability court today, declaring Hussain and Hasan Nawaz proclaimed offenders.

The court was conducting proceedings against the sons of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, who have not appeared in a single hearing of the three corruption references filed against them by NAB.

The brothers, who reside outside Pakistan, are accused in all three references ordered by the Supreme Court in its July 28 verdict in the Panama Papers case: Avenfield properties, Azizia Steel Mills and Hill Metals Establishment, and Flagship Investment Ltd.

As the hearing began today, the NAB team asked for a short recess as its chief prosecutor was en route from Lahore.

Judge Mohammad Bashir then allowed a short recess. Resuming the hearing, the NAB team submitted a report on four bank accounts of Hussain Nawaz.

The court was informed that Hussain's accounts possess $3992, 4272 Euros, 207 pounds and Rs382,381, respectively.

The prosecution team informed the court that the brothers own no properties in areas operated by the Lahore Development Authority and Defence Housing Authority. They added that a reply is awaited from Bahria Town and the Lahore deputy commissioner.

Detailing the process of declaring them proclaimed offenders, the prosecutor informed the judge that they sent notices through the Foreign Office to post on the Avenfield flats of the Sharifs in London.

The court also recorded the statements of investigation officers Mohammad Kamran in the Flagship Reference, Mehboob Alam in the Al Azizia reference and Imran Dogar in the Avenfiled reference.

The NAB prosecutor then pleaded the court to declare the two proclaimed offenders as the process of ensuring their presence has been completed.

The court then adjourned the hearing until tomorrow, when it will also take up the hearing of the three references against the Sharif family.

Last week, the thirty-day deadline given to Hussain and Hasan to appear before the accountability court hearing corruption cases against them expired.

With the expiry of the deadline, the court will officially declare the two proclaimed offenders as a result of which the properties of the scions of Nawaz family may be seized at any given time.
