Illegal land case: Proclamation notice posted outside Nawaz’s Jati Umra residence
LAHORE: An accountability court has issued a proclamation against former prime minister Nawaz Sharif over his perpetual absence from trial proceedings in an illegal land allotment case, ARY News reported on Saturday.
The anti-graft watchdog has pasted a proclamation notice outside Sharif’s Jati Umra residence and court office. The notice will be sent to London through the foreign office.
The IHC released on Friday the two-pages-long written order in which it has directed PML-N supremo to appear before the court by Nov 24 to avoid being declared an offender.
The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) yesterday wrote a letter to Interior Ministry for the cancellation of the former prime minister’s CNIC and passport.
Arrest warrants for Sharif have been issued by the court and thus his travel documents should be cancelled, the NAB recommended interior ministry in a letter.
The accountability court had already issued arrest warrants for former prime minister Nawaz Sharif in an illegal land allotment case.
Sharif is facing accusations of illegal allotment of land as the then Punjab CM to Mir Shakilur Rehman.
On March 12, the National Accountability Bureau had apprehended Mir Shakilur Rahman in a case pertaining to the illegal exemption of 54 plots in Lahore.
It is pertinent to mention here that Nawaz Sharif is currently present in London after being granted a bail on medical grounds.
