Shehbaz Sharif failed to answer about his suspicious accounts: NAB report

LAHORE (WEB HAMARI) – National Accountability Bureau (NAB) submitted its investigation report in the court on Thursday which revealed that Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) president and Opposition Leader in the National Assembly (NA) Shehbaz Sharif failed to answer about his suspicious accounts.

According to NAB sources, State Bank of Pakistan’s (SBP) financial unit had information about the suspicious accounts.

Sharif also could not satisfy the anti-graft watchdog over the question related to the gifts worth of rupees given to his sons Salman and Hamza.

The report says that NAB questioned PML-N president about the source of the funds in his accounts. “I do not know about them. Ask my lawyer and accountant, “I replied.

The accountant also gave no reply saying that the record of the account is not available.

The office address and contact number of another suspect involved in Ashiana Housing scam and that of Shehbaz Sharif were found in the same record.

The opposition leader also refused to recognize Masroor Ahmed and Maqsood.

NAB asked Shehbaz to explain the amount worth Rs93.7 million given to him as a gift as it was shown in 2011. Also, income source pertaining to Rs17.5 million gift money in 2012 have also not been mentioned.

Sharif was shifted to Kot Lakhpat jail today on judicial remand after the court rejected NAB’s appeal to extend his physical remand.
