The Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) offloaded two nephews of the former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif at the Allama Iqbal International Airport in Lahore.
Yousaf Abbas and Abdul Aziz Abbas, sons of Abbas Sharif were trying to leave the country in the guise of pilgrims when immigration official of FIA stopped them saying that their names were on the Provisional National Identity List (PNIL).
PNIL is a new Exit Control List (ECL)-like category recently introduced under which a passenger can be stopped from leaving the country.
Both brothers are shareholders of Chaudhry Sugar Mills (CSM). They are named in the CSM case by the Lahore office of the National Accountability Bureau (NAB).
According to a NAB official. The two brothers failed to give answers to the NAB’s queries regarding the investments and remittances they received.
“Both are facing money laundering and ‘income beyond means’ investigations in this case along with Nawaz Sharif, Shahbaz Sharif, Maryam Nawaz, Hamza Shahbaz and others,” he said.
Maryam Nawaz, alongside her cousin brothers Yousaf and Abdul Aziz, joined the NAB inquiry where they failed to identify the foreigners who made the investments.
Maryam and Yousaf are once again summoned by NAB on August 8.
