LAHORE: Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif failed to appear immediately (Sunday) before the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) for questioning in a case pertaining to misuse of official powers in building of a street main to the Sharif household residence in Jati Umra, Raiwind.
According to sources, NAB’s mixed investigation staff had summoned Nawaz over allegations that the Sharif brothers ‘misused’ their authority to enhance the duvet space of the street between Raiwind and their household residence.
The anti-graft physique claims the street was widened from 20 to 24 ft, and that the case includes alleged misappropriation of Rs125 million.
It is alleged that the funds allotted for improvement initiatives by District Council, Lahore had been used for building of the street.
Investigations towards the Sharif brothers in the case had been initiated by NAB on April 17, 2000.
NAB Chairman Justice (retd) Javed Iqbal not too long ago ordered a reinvestigation of the case after which the bureau will submit a reference in an accountability courtroom.
Earlier, Nawaz had not appeared before the bureau regardless of a summons as he was in London on the time. He was, due to this fact, summoned as soon as once more by the NAB and is anticipated to appear before the bureau immediately.
