(Pak Destiny) Disqualified prime minister Nawaz Sharif, his wife and mother have more than 3,000 kanals and palatial residence at Jati Umra t in Lahore on their names, reveals Punjab Revenue Department.
In reply to the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) about details of the Sharif family’s properties, the revenue department says, Nawaz Sharif owns over 1,600 kanals, his wife, Begum Kulsoom Nawaz, has over 1,100 kanals and his mother has 635 kanals (in addition to her Jati Umra Raiwind house) in Lahore. “His sons — Hassan and Hussain — do not have any property in the province. However, the property status of Maryam has yet to be clear,” it said.
NAB has already begun the process of declaring Hassan and Hussain proclaimed offenders (POs) and it has started issuing newspaper advertisements in this regard.
On Oct 9, the accountability court in Islamabad ordered NAB to initiate the process of declaring the former premier’s sons POs, as they had consistently skipped the court’s proceedings in three graft references pertaining to their Park Lane flats and the establishment of offshore companies.
The revenue depart has sought time from the NAB about finding Maryam’s property in Punjab. It is interesting to see that the Sharif family despite allegedly parked billions abroad still has some property in Lahore, isn’t it interesting. – Pak Destiny
