LAHORE (92 News) – Advertisements to declare PML-N President Shehbaz Sharif’s wife Nusrat Shehbaz as proclaimed offender have been displayed outside the accountability court.

According to details, the court has started the proclamation proceedings against Nusrat Shehbaz over her perpetual absence from the trial in a money laundering case.

A proclamation notice requiring her to appear before court on November 11 to save herself from having to face adverse legal action was pasted outside the court by the investigation officer of the case. The ads were pasted by investigation officer.

“Accused Nusrat Shehbaz Sharif whose complete description and address has been given above [in the notice] has allegedly committed an offence of corruption and corrupt practices. It has been reported on the warrant of arrest issued against her that the said accused cannot be found,” read the notice.

The court, according to the notice, observed that the absconder is deliberately hiding to avoid the execution of the warrants. “Proclamation u/s 87 Cr.P.C is hereby made that the said accused is required to appear before this Court to defend the said reference on 11th day of November 2020,” the notice said.

Earlier, accountability court has dismissed the plea of Opposition Leader in National Assembly (NA) Shehbaz Sharif’s wife Nusrat Shehbaz seeking exemption from the hearings in money laundering case.

Announcing the reserved verdict, accountability judge Jawadul Hassan has directed to launch proceedings to declare Nusrat Shahbaz as proclaimed offender.

Accountability court had issued bailable arrest warrants for Shehbaz Sharif’s wife Nusrat Shahbaz and his daughter Rabia Imran over continuous absence in money laundering case.

The accountability judge has directed Nusrat Shahbaz and Rabia Imran to attend next hearing on September 29 at any cost.

On the other hand, a Lahore accountability court on Monday set November 11 for indictment of PML-N President Shehbaz Sharif, his son Hamza Shehbaz and other members of his family in a money laundering and assets beyond means case.
