National Accountability Bureau (NAB) Chairman Javed Iqbal on Monday ordered the cancellation of summons issued by the accountability watchdog to the wife and daughters of PML-N president Shahbaz Sharif two days earlier in an investigation regarding money laundering and accumulation of assets beyond known sources of income.
Iqbal issued the directive during a visit to the NAB Lahore office today, a press release issued by the bureau said. It said the NAB chairman was briefed on “mega corruption cases” and cases concerning the Sharif family by the director general of NAB Lahore.
“The chairman NAB has decided that he himself will directly supervise the cases regarding the Sharif family,” the statement said.
According to the press release, Iqbal ordered the cancellation of the summons notices issued by NAB Lahore to Nusrat Shahbaz, the wife of Sharif, and to two of Sharif’s married daughters, Rabia Imran and Javaria Ali. He instead directed that the three women be mailed questionnaires to provide information to NAB regarding the relevant cases.
