The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has decided to approach the Interpol for the arrest of Hassan Nawaz, Hussain Nawaz and Ishaq Dar.

Former finance minister Ishaq Dar Monday informed the Supreme Court that his consultant had suggested him to stay in the United Kingdom for two months further in order to continue his physiotherapy.

A four-page additional document submitted by Advocate Salman Aslam Butt on behalf of Dar in a case challenging his nomination papers for Senate elections included the medical report written by Consultant Neurosurgeon Richard Gullan.

Dar has been in London since October last year after the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) in the wake of Panama Papers verdict filed a reference against him on account of allegedly possessing wealth beyond known sources and the accountability court declared him an absconder.

While making conclusive arguments on the fifth day in the Avenfield corruption reference, Harris contended the joint investigation team’s report on Panama Papers and its investigative analysis could not be considered as acceptable evidence. He asserted his client, Sharif, was neither the beneficial owner of London flats nor had he any link with these apartments in any capacity. He termed the JIT report unacceptable.

Harris said a witness, Muhammad Rasheed, had handed over some documents to the NAB. As per these documents, Muhammad Rasheed had agreed to provide a few notices to Muhammad Raza Khan Bangash in connection with Al-Taufiq case. Harris said that as per Muhammad Rasheed, the judgment of Queen Bench was implemented about Shehbaz Sharif, Abbas Sharif and Mian Sharif, but there was no mention of Nawaz Sharif in it.

The defence counsel also pointed out that Shakeel Anjum Nagira got documents from the Supreme Court and witness Abdul Waheed Khan made a statement about the interview of Hassan Nawaz. Now it has also to be seen what statement was made by the prosecution about the London flats, he stated. He said Robert Redley recorded his statement about the trust deed. The court should also remember a witness who made a statement with four conditions, Harris said.

He said transfer of scrap machinery from Dubai to Saudi Arabia was mentioned in the JIT report and NAB sent an MLA to the UAE government which replied to the bureau and the JIT gave its opinion on it, but that was not acceptable evidence. He said Sahrif had no links with money transaction of the Gulf Steel Mills in 1980. He said the opinion of the investigation officer was not admissible and two letters of the Qatari prince were not related to Sharif. Harris said JIT head Wajid Zia failed to tell the worth of London flats.
