ISLAMABAD – The executive board of National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on Thursday has approved to file four references against Sharif family and Federal Minister for Finance Ishaq Dar over Panamagate issue.

Chairman Qamar Zaman chaired the session that was postponed on Wednesday due to the absence of Prosecutor General Ashtar Ausaf.

During the meeting, ex-prime minister Nawaz Sharif and his children Hassan Nawaz, Hussain Nawaz and Maryam Nawaz along with his son-in-law Captain Safdar have been officially nominated accused in the references.

A reference against Ishaq Dar for having assets more than income has also been approved.

Supreme Court had directed NAB to prepare references in which one was regarding Al-Azizia Steel Mill while the other two were about London flats and 16 offshore companies held by the Sharif family.

SC had disqualified Nawaz Sharif in Panama case verdict on the basis of his non-withdrawn salary, considering it part of his assets on July 28.
