LAHORE: The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on Friday requested its Headquarters to place former prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s scions, Hasan and Hussain Nawaz, on the Exit Control List (ECL).
According to reports, NAB Lahore has sent a letter to its Headquarters for further action.
Earlier in October, Hasan said that the summons, warrants or proceedings by NAB did not apply to him and his brother Hussain Nawaz saying they were both British nationals.
An accountability court had ordered the initiation of the process of declaring Hasan and Hussain proclaimed offenders for not appearing before the court.
The two Sharifs are accused in all three references ordered by the Supreme Court in its July 28 verdict in the Panama Papers case, ie, Avenfield properties, Azizia Steel Mills and Hill Metals Establishment, and Flagship Investment Ltd.
During the October 9 hearing of the references brought against Sharifs, Judge Mohammad Bashir had accepted NAB’s plea to declare Hussain and Hasan proclaimed offenders and separated their proceedings. Their non-bailable arrest warrants, issued at the last hearing on October 2, remain intact.
