Sharif’s sons declared proclaimed offenders
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.
