Islamabad (Staff Report): National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on Monday directed NAB Balochistan Director General (DG) Irfan Naeem Mangi, who was part of the joint investigation team that probed the Sharif family's business dealings, the responsibility of implementing the Supreme Court's July 28 order on the Panama Papers case.

The decision was taken in a meeting chaired by NAB Chairman Qamar Zaman Chaudhry. NAB's DG Operations, Zahir Shah, and DG Rawalpindi Nasir Iqbal also attended the meeting.

Mangi will file references against former prime minister Nawaz Sharif; his children Hussain, Hassan and Maryam Nawaz; son-in-law Muhammad Safdar; former finance minister and father-in-law of his youngest daughter, Ishaq Dar, and others named by the Supreme Court in its Panamagate ruling.

The references will be filed against charges of corruption against the Sharif family, Ishaq Dar as well as Sheikh Saeed, Musa Ghani, Kashif Masood Qazi, Javaid Kiyani and Saeed Ahmed and other individuals who have any direct or indirect connection with the actions of the Sharif family.

The SC has ordered NAB to file five references against the accused within six weeks of the July 28 verdict, and directed that proceedings be completed within six months.
