NAB Seeks Details of Ex-PM Shahid Abbasi Assets

ISLAMABAD: The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on Saturday sought the asset details of the former prime minister and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) senior leader Shahid Khaqan Abbasi in connection with the Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) case against him.

In its notice, the anti-graft watchdog has directed the former PM to submit all documents on his assets and warned him that he can be sentenced for not cooperating with the accountability team.

In September 2018, the apex court had directed NAB to complete the inquiry against Abbasi and others for the alleged corruption in the LNG contract.

In June 2018, the NAB approved inquiry against former premier Nawaz Sharif and Abbasi, who was the former minister for petroleum and natural resources at that time, for granting contract of LNG terminal for 15 years to their ‘favourite’ company.

It was also observed that this contract had allegedly caused a loss of billions of rupees to the national exchequer.
