Shehbaz Sharif to appear before NAB court today
Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) president and Opposition Leader in the National Assembly (NA) Shehbaz Sharif is set to appear before an accountability court today (Thursday) n a case pertaining to Ashiana Housing scam.

National Accountability Bureau’s (NAB) team will seek the transit remand of Sharif for appearance in National Assembly session due to be held on Friday.

A plea has also been prepared for the attainment of additional 14-day physical remand of former Punjab CM.

Strict security arrangements are in place as containers have been placed on the way leading towards NAB court.

On the other hand, NAB is likely to file the reference on November 24 in accountability court. The anti-graft watchdog’s team has briefed NAB chairman Justice (retd.) Javed Iqbal about the reference.

NAB has accused Shehbaz Sharif of benefiting private individuals while misusing his authority.

It has been written in the reference that during his tenure as Chief Minister, Sharif illegally used the powers of PLDC board of directors.

In order to provide illegal profit to his desired company, the former CM allegedly cancelled the contract of the other coming on merit while collaborating with Fawad Hassan Fawad, says the reference.

NAB sources say that Shehbaz Sharif directed to transfer the contract of Ashiana project from PLDC to Lahore Development Authority (LDA) which was being headed by Ahad Khan Cheema.

In this way, as per public partnership the contract was awarded to Bismillah Engineering which is a proxy company of Paragon.

Thus, all the illegal steps were taken to benefit the preferred companies.
