Shehbaz Sharif appears before NAB in three corruption probes

LAHORE: Former Punjab chief minister Shehbaz Sharif appeared before the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on Monday in corruption investigations over Ashiana-e-Iqbal Housing scheme, Punjab Power Development Company (PPDC) and Punjab Saaf Paani company.

The Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) president was issued a summon on Sunday.

NAB is investigating Shehbaz over illegal appointments in PPDC.

For Ashiana-e-Iqbal housing scheme case, he was summoned after revelations by former principal secretary Fawad Hassan. Fawad was previously accused and investigated for misuse of authority by illegally awarding contracts in the housing scheme.

NAB had previously summoned Shehbaz over information/evidence regarding the illegal appointment of Syed Farukh Ali Shah as a member in National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (NEPRA) and chief executive officer of the PPDC. Shehbaz was summoned by NAB for the third time in PPDC investigation.

Corruption in the Punjab Saaf Pani Company is at the centre of the clean water case. The Saaf Pani Company was established by the Shehbaz-led Punjab government to conceive, plan, design, execute and manage projects for the provision of safe drinking water, in terms of both access and quality, to the communities living in unserved and underserved areas ie rural and peri-urban areas of the province.
