September 27, 2020
ISLAMABAD (92 News) - A combined investigation team (CIT) of the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has summoned again Shehbaz Sharif’s son, Salman, on October 1 in money laundering case on Sunday. The FIA has asked Salman Shahbaz, son of Shehbaz Sharif, to appear before it for questioning in the money laundering and sugar mills corruption case. A special investigation team has warned that if Salman does not appear at 9am on October 1, there will be strict legal action initiated against him. This is the second summons he has received from the FIA. The notice has been sent to Shehbaz Sharif’s house in Lahore. He was first summoned on September 25 but did not appear. The investigators want to know the source of a Rs1.5 billion deposit made into his account. Earlier in June, the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) had decided to approach Interpol to bring back Salman Shehbaz to the country to face corruption cases. Salman Shehbaz had been declared an absconder in October last year by the anti-graft watchdog’s court in the ongoing money laundering investigations.
