NAB decides to record statements of JIT members first

The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has decided to first record the statements of the Joint Investigation Team (JIT) individuals who had tested the seaward resources of the Sharif family. The graft watchdog presented an application on Saturday to Justice Ijazul Ahsan, the judge delegated by the best court to supervise NAB’s procedures against the Sharif family, for this reason.

On Friday, previous leader Nawaz Sharif and his children did not turn up for recording their announcements with NAB investigators in spite of being summoned.

The Sharif family has concluded that they would not show up before NAB until the point when the Supreme Court reached a decision on a review petition to recorded by the removed PM against the Supreme Court judgment that precluded him.

On July 28, in a point of interest judgment in the Panamagate case, a five-judge Supreme Court seat collectively dismissed Nawaz Sharif and coordinated NAB to document references against Sharif, his children Hassan Nawaz, Hussain Nawaz, little girl Maryam Nawaz, child in-law Captain (retd) Muhammad Safdar and the then fund serve Ishaq Dar.

NAB has alloted and devoted 14 officers to explore the claims and subsequently document four separate references against Sharif relatives in light of the SC judgment, a media report proposes.

The National Accountability Ordinance gives that if an investigation officer esteems it essential in the light of the accessible material confirmation, they can order the arrest of a blamed at any phase for an examination.
