National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has summoned members of the Sharif family to appear before it on Sunday at 11am.

Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, his sons ─ Hassan and Hussain Nawaz ─ his daughter, Maryam Nawaz and her husband Captain Safdar have been summoned to appear before investigators in Lahore in a reference related to the Sharif's Avenfield properties, Spokesperson Asim Ali Nawazish said.

It appears unlikely, however, that the members of the Sharif family will appear before the investigating team today, Nawazish added.

Last week, NAB had summoned Nawaz and his two sons to appear before it in the Al-Azizia Steel Mills case.

However, the former prime minister and both his sons decided not to appear before the NAB team till Nawaz's petition seeking a review of the Supreme Court’s verdict that disqualified him from office is decided.

Nawaz has also moved a separate application in the SC with a request to suspend the final verdict in the Panama Papers case as long as the review petition is pending.

On July 28, a five judge larger bench of the SC while disqualifying Nawaz under Article 62(1)( f) of the Constitution had asked NAB to file four references in the Rawalpindi accountability court within six weeks on the basis of the material collected and referred to by the Joint Investi­gation Team (JIT) as well as that already available with the Federal Investi­gation Agency and NAB.

According to the court order, NAB has to file a reference against Sharif; his children and son-in-law in connection to four upscale flats in London.

Another reference against Sharif and his sons about Al-Azizia Steel Mills and Hill Metal Establishment and one regarding 16 other companies were also ordered. The companies are Flagship Investments, Hartstone Pro­perties, Que Holdings, Quint Eaton Place 2, Quint Saloane, Quaint, Flagship Securities, Quint Gloucester Place, Quint Paddington, Flagship Develop­ments, Alanna Ser­vices (BVI), Lankin SA (BVI), Chadron, Ansbacher, Coomber and Capital FZE (Dubai).

The fourth reference has to be filed against Finance Minister Ishaq Dar for possessing assets and funds beyond his known sources of income.
