LAHORE: The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on Saturday decided to again summon former prime minister Nawaz Sharif after he failed to appear before the anti-graft watchdog today in a corruption case.
The anti-graft agency officials had on Monday delivered summons for ex-premier Nawaz Sharif at the Jati Umra checkpost after the officials were not allowed to enter the premises.
The Bureau had summoned the former premier to record his statement in a corruption case pertaining to the alleged misuse of authority to get constructed a road from Ada Plot to Jati Umra in 1998.
Sources said that the NAB has decided to again summon Nawaz Sharif.
According to sources, the road was illegally widened from 20 feet to 24 feet. The case involves the alleged misappropriation of Rs125 million.
The former prime minister is facing a myriad of corruption cases since his ouster on July 28, 2017 by the Supreme Court of Pakistan in the high-profile Panama Papers case.
