ISLAMABAD: The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on Friday recommended placing the names of former Punjab CM Shehbaz Sharif’s sons on the Exit Control List (ECL).
NAB, in a letter to the Ministry of Interior, stated that Hamza Shehbaz and Salman Shehbaz are under an investigation, therefore, their names be placed on the no-fly list.
The Shehbaz brothers are being investigated by the bureau NAB for the construction of a bridge in Chiniot which allegedly facilitates Ramzan Sugar Mills owned by the Sharif family. The NAB claimed that Rs 200 million was paid from the national exchequer for the construction of the bridge.
Leader of the Opposition in Punjab Assembly Hamza Shehbaz appeared before NAB last week but his brother Salman failed to do so as he is in London.
According to reports, three NAB deputy directors from the intelligence, prosecution and investigation wings questioned Hamza regarding the alleged abuse of power.
Shehbaz Sharif has been in NAB’s custody since October 5 in relation to the Ashiana Iqbal Housing Scheme case.
