Before departing for Pakistan, Nawaz wonders what NAB reference is all about
LONDON: Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif on Sunday said he already kept saying again and again that the case in the name of Panama Leaks was not at all about corruption, kickback or commission, ARY News reported.
“There is no case of corruption in our name. We haven’t done any corruption or embezzled public exchequer,” he said talking to media in London before departing for Pakistan.
He wondered what kind of reference was filed in the National Accountability Bureau against them and what kind of accountability they were being held for the matters of 1972.
The ousted PM said the punishment in Panama Case was actually announced on an Iqama.
It is apropos here to mention that, An accountability court had last week directed Nawaz Sharif and members of his family to appear before it on Sept 26 in graft references against them.
Judge Muhammad Bashir had reissued summons against members of the Sharif family after they failed to turn up on September 19 in response to the court’s earlier notice for appearance.
He directed PML-N leader Asif Kirmani, who was present in the court, to inform the Sharif family about the summons.
The hearing was put off till Sept 26.
