A proclamation for declaring Nusrat Shehbaz, wife of Leader of Opposition in the National Assembly Shehbaz Sharif, an absconder in the money laundering and assets beyond means case has been displayed by National Accountability Bureau (NAB) in the accountability court’s premises here.
The proclamation would also be affixed at the residential address of the accused where she used to live.
On November 2, the court seized with the matter had ordered NAB to start the process under Section 87 of Code of Criminal Procedure (CrPC) to declare Nusrat an absconder for not attending the proceedings after dismissing her plea for permanent exemption from personal appearance in the case.
The proclamation required the accused to ensure her appearance before the court on the next hearing on November 11. It further stated that the accused failed to appear in the court despite being issued non-bailable warrants.
It is pertinent to mention here that NAB had filed a reference against Shehbaz Sharif’s family before the accountability court in the money laundering and assets beyond means case.
