ISLAMABAD: An accountability court of Islamabad on Wednesday ordered deposed prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and his sons, Hussain and Hassan, to appear before it on Sept.19.

The summons were issued by judge Muhammad Bashir over a reference related to Flagship Investments Limited, Hart¬stone Properties Limited, Que Holdings Limited, Quint Eaton Place Limited, Quint Saloane Limited (formerly Quint Eaton Place Limited), Quaint Limited, Flagship Securities Limited, Quint Gloucester Place Limited, Quint Paddington Limited (formerly Rivates Estates Limited), Flagship Developments Limited, Alanna Services Limited (BVI), Lankin SA (BVI), Chadron Inc, Ansbacher Inc, Coomber Inc; and another company based in a Gulf country.

The reference was moved by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) that was ordered by the Supreme Court to be filed against Sharif, his sons, son-in-law Captain (retd) Safdar and Finance Minister Senator Ishaq Dar.

The accountability court acted shortly after the NAB resubmitted the references. Last week, it had filed four references against the Sharifs as well as Dar in light of the July 28 judgment of the Supreme Court in the Panama case. However, the registrar of the accountability court had returned the references and directed NAB to re-submit them by Sept.14.

The NAB stated that the references should be treated as interim cases and it could file supplementary references later.

It said the accused had been given ample time to explain and provide evidence regarding the accumulation of these assets but they did not join investigation before NAB on the pretext of a review petition already filed before the Supreme Court of Pakistan against July 28 verdict.
