ISLAMABAD: The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on Tuesday issued orders to freeze 23 properties of President Pakistan Muslim League-N (PML-N) Shehbaz Sharif and his sons Hamza and Suleman Shehbaz in assets beyond means and money laundering cases.
The accountability watchdog has written letters to the relevant banks in this regard. The properties that have been frozen include nine plots in Johar Town, four in Judicial Colony, two houses in Model Town and two houses in DHA, Lahore, apart from the properties in Abbotabad, Haripur and Chiniot.
It said that an investigation Shehbaz and his sons had revealed that the former Punjab chief minister had acquired properties in the name of his two wives Nusrat and Tehmina Durrani.
Last month, the NAB had frozen shares of the Shehbaz Sharif family in different companies.
The DG NAB Lahore has also said that the NAB would file a reference against the PML-N president.
On Oct 15, notable British journalist David Rose, who in a detailed report has exposed corruption of the former chief minister, had taken a jab at Shehbaz Sharif for alleged money-laundering through the United Kingdom.
