The Sharif family has decided to not appear before the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) until the top court decides the review petitions filed by former PM Nawaz Sharif against his disqualification.

Despite being summoned, deposed PM Nawaz Sharif and his sons Hussain and Hassan Nawaz did not appear before NAB investigators in Lahore for recording their statements.

A seven-member NAB team has reached Lahore from Rawalpindi to record the statements of Sharif and his sons. Besides, Finance Minister Ishaq Dar and Tariq Shafi were also summoned but they too did not show up.

The Sharif family’s counsel reached the NAB office and informed the team that the family would not appear before them until the Supreme Court reached a decision on the review petitions filed by the former PM against his disqualification.
