A PAKISTANI ac­count­abil­ity court on Tues­day inched closer to de­clare the Lon­don­based sons of ousted Premier Nawaz Sharif as pro­claimed of­fend­ers in the Panama Papers case.

Three cases were filed against Sharif, his two sons Has­san and Hu­sain, daugh­ter Maryam and son-in-law Muham­mad Saf­dar on Septem­ber 8 by the Na­tional Ac­count­abil­ity Bureau (NAB) fol­low­ing July 28 ver­dict by the Supreme Court in the Panam Papers case.

An­other case was filed against Fi­nance Min­is­ter Ishaq Dar based on the court rul­ing.

Ac­count­abil­ity Court Judge Muham­mad Bashir last month sep­a­rated the case of Sharif ’s sons from rest of the fam­ily and also ini­ti­ated pro­ceed­ing to de­clare them pro­claimed of­fend­ers as the two broth­ers, cur­rently in Lon­don, have not ap­peared in the court even once.

The court also de­clared them ab­scon­ders on Oc­to­ber 10 and set a dead­line of 30 days for them to ap­pear in the court which has al­ready ex­pired.
