ISLAMABAD: The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has approached the accountability court with a request to declare former prime minister Nawaz Sharif as the culprit convicted in an illegal land allotment case involving Jang / Geo Chief Editor Mir Shakilur Rehman.

In a statement issued on Wednesday, a NAB spokesman said that former prime minister Nawaz Sharif did not appear at the NAB office in Lahore to get his statement recorded in a case of illegal land allotment.

NAB has issued a warrant for Nawaz’s arrest according to the law regarding his non-cooperation in the investigation because the land was given to Mir Shakil by Nawaz Sharif during his tenure as chief minister of Punjab in the 80s.

On March 27, NAB sent a questionnaire to Nawaz and called him to the bureau office on March 31 to record his statement. Earlier, on March 15, the NAB Lahore office had summoned the former prime minister to appear before the bureau on March 20, but there was no response from him.

The NAB claims that Nawaz – when he was chief minister of Punjab – gave a 54-canal plot of land in 1986 to MSR.

Nawaz is currently in London where he is undergoing treatment for various diseases. Rehman was arrested by the anti-corruption watchdog on March 12 when he appeared in front of the Lahore bureau office in connection with a case of private ownership.

According to Rehman, the property had been purchased from a private party and all evidence, including legal requirements such as duties and taxes, was given to the anti-corruption body.

Rehman went to the bureau office in Lahore with a notice of summons to verify the complaint, but the arrest was made.
