ISLAMABAD: The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on Tuesday asked the accountability court hearing corruption cases against former premier Nawaz Sharif and members of his family to make newly acquired documents showing the ownership of the Sharifs’ London properties part of the Avenfield case.
A NAB prosecutor moved an application in the court, requesting it to make the documents part of court record in the case.
The bureau has received verified documents from the British Land Registry. According to the documents, the ownership of the Sharif family’s apartments in a posh London neighborhood were transferred to the offshore companies – Neilson and Nescoll during 1993 -1995.
These flats were transferred when Sharif’s children were too young to make a living.
As per Avenfield Properties reference, Sharif, his brood and his son-in-law, retired Captain Mohammad Safdar, had purchased four flats in Park Lane, UK, without legitimate financial means. However, the former premier and his family members have consistently claimed that they were legally gained.
