ISLAMABAD (92 News) – The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has on Monday summoned a key meeting to discuss the cases against the Sharif family on the orders of the Supreme Court.

The meeting will also discuss the strategy to implement the court orders.

It will also discuss the sending of cases against the Sharif family to the Rawalpindi NAB.

Earlier, the apex court had directed the NAB to complete investigations against Sharif family within six weeks announce decision in six months.

The top court had on Friday last week disqualified Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif from public office over long-running corruption allegations, a decision that ousts him from the premiership for the third time.

The ruling saw political instability take hold in Pakistan once again, dissolving Cabinet and leaving the country without a sitting prime minister.

As the verdict was announced in Islamabad, opposition supporters rushed into the street chanting slogans and handing out sweets in celebration.

Hundreds also took to the streets in northwestern Peshawar, beating drums and distributing money and sweets while chanting “Go Nawaz Go”.
