LAHORE – A notice summoning Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) supremo and former Prime Minister (PM) Nawaz Sharif in Toshakhana case has been pasted on his Raiwind residence today (Monday).
According to details, National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has placed the notice in Jati Umra with the help of police officers. The summon reads that Nawaz Sharif is intentionally skipping the hearings of the case. However, he has been given last chance to appear before the court and record his statement till August 17.
It is to be mentioned here that accountability court had issued non-bailable arrest warrant for PM Nawaz Sharif over continuous absence in Toshakhana case. Earlier, NAB prosecutor said that Asif Ali Zardari and Nawaz Sharif got cars from Yousaf Raza Gillani through illegal way.
Zardari had only paid 15 percent cost of the cars by using his fake accounts, however, Libya and United Arab Emirates (UAE) also gifted him cars when he was serving as president, he told. NAB official alleged that Asif Ali Zardari used these cars for his personal work instead of submitting them to Toshakhana.
Nawaz Sharif got car without any application in 2008 when he was not holding any public office, the anti-corruption watchdog’s representative stated.
