NAB laws are not applicable upon British Nationals

LONDON: Former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif son Hussain Nawaz has said that NAB laws, summons, arrest warrants are not applicable upon us as we hold British Nationality.

An accountability court ordered the initiation of the process of declaring Hasan Nawaz and Hussain Nawaz proclaimed offenders for not appearing before the court.

Both the brothers have said that they have not been given the summons yet. It was announced that the process of declaring Hasan and Hussain proclaimed offenders will involve publication of notices in the newspapers directing the accused to appear in court and failure to do so will result in seizure of property and issuance of further warrants.

Hasan Nawaz, a respondent in the references filed by NAB against the Sharif family, told media that the court cannot declare him a proclaimed offender.

“I am not a proclaimed offender and the NAB cannot make a proclaimed offender. In the absence of a crime, they are trying to catch a black cat in the dark,” he told.

Hasan Nawaz said he has not received any NAB summons at his residential address in London where he has been living for the last 24 years. The former prime minister’s son said he is a British citizen and has never received the said summons according to British laws.

Hasan termed NAB’s actions an exercise that is nothing more than political victimisation and an effort to make “news headlines”. Hasan Nawaz said he has not committed any crime which could him make him an absconder and has never fled from the country.
