The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has decided to approach Interpol to arrest son of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) president Shehbaz Sharif, Salman Shehbaz.
According to media reports, NAB will provide proofs against Salman Shehbaz to Interpol. Let it be known that Salman Shahbaz is absconder in money laundering case and a non-bailable arrest warrant has also been issued against him.
In the retrospect, he has also been declared a proclaimed offender in the said case.
The anti-graft body NAB asked the accused to be declared absconder due to his consistent absence from court proceedings.
Earlier in 2019, the anti-corruption watchdog NAB had seized the property of Salman Shehbaz over his no-show despite repeated summons in a money laundering case.
The anti-corruption watchdog issued six orders, each listing separate properties acquired by Shehbaz Sharif, and his two sons Hamza and Salman — all three of whom are nominated in corruption cases being probed by NAB.
According to the bureau, the evidence collected against the three so far had provided NAB with “reasonable grounds for believing” that Shehbaz, Salman and Hamza were involved in “offences of corruption and corrupt practices”.
According to NAB, it found that Shehbaz acquired several properties — that have now been frozen — in the name of his wives Nusrat Shehbaz and Tehmina Durrani in Lahore, Abbottabad and Haripur. Hamza and Salman also acquired several properties in Lahore and Chiniot, which have now been frozen by NAB.
He was also named in the government’s recent sugar commission investigative report.
