NAB staff investigating cases against PM Shehbaz Sharif receiving threats

Threats have been made against teams from the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) who are investigating allegations of corruption leveled against Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif.

According to sources with knowledge of the situation, investigators from NAB who were working on cases involving money laundering, the Ashiana Housing Affair, and the Ramazan Sugar Mills received threats and were advised not to pursue cases against Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif.

If the teams persist in pursuing the case against the premier, they will face terrible repercussions, as that was the threat that was made to them.

The teams have shared their findings regarding the dangers with the higher-ups.

Earlier, the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) declined the opportunity to preside over a trial on the allegations of money laundering leveled against the Prime Minister of Pakistan, Shehbaz Sharif, and the Chief Minister of Punjab, Hamza Shahbaz.

At the hearing that took place today, Special Judge Central Aijaz Hasan presided over the proceedings. During the hearing, the Special Prosecutor of the FIA Sikander Zulqarnain testified that he was informed by an investigation officer that the Director-General of the FIA had asked him to step down from the case.

Shehbaz Sharif and Hamza Shahbaz are being prosecuted for allegedly engaging in illegal activities involving money, and the special prosecutor has stated that the Director-General of the Federal Investigation Agency has prohibited him from testifying in court over these allegations.

In the written request that he submitted, which was eventually included as part of the official record of the case by the judge who presided over it, he stated that “it was conveyed that the DG no longer wished to pursue the matter.”
