NAB reply sought over auction of Nawaz Sharif’s properties


Lahore: An accountability court on Monday directed the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) to submit comments on an application seeking to halt the auction of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s property.

Yousuf Abbas and others submitted applications. The court directed the corruption watchdog to respond to the request before the next hearing on February 4.

The applicant said the auction process would be challenged once the PML-N Supreme returned to the country from London, asking the court to temporarily suspend the auction.

Besides, they pleaded the court to revisit its decision of the auction of the properties.

On Jan 14, the Punjab government formed a special medical board to examine the medical reports of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, who traveled to London in 2019 for medical treatment.

Taking to Twitter, Punjab government spokesperson Hasaan Khawar said, “the Punjab government has constituted a nine-member special medical board comprising senior professors to examine the medical reports of Nawaz Sharif and give its opinion regarding his fitness for travel back to the country.”

“The board will submit its report within five days,” he said, sharing a notification in this regard.
