Lahore (Staff Report): A three-member team of the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) is likely to visit London and Dubai in next week to gather evidence of assets owned by the Sharif family in foreign countries.
Sharif family members, including former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, his children — Maryam, Hussain and Hassan — and his son-in-law Captain (retd) Safdar being tried by the accountability court on corruption charges.
The corruption cases regarding Avenfield apartment in London, Al-Azizia Steel Mills, and Hill Metal Establishment are being investigated by Lahore and Rawalpindi NAB.
The NAB had written letters to United Kingdom, United Arab Emirates, Qatar and Saudi Arabia to get supporting documents in the cases and in response received some important papers.
