LAHORE: An accountability court on Tuesday declared PML-N President Shahbaz Sharif`s son-in-law Imran Ali Yousaf a proclaimed offender for his alleged involvement in Rs12 million graft.
The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has requested the court to declare Yousaf a proclaimed offender for not joining/ appearing for investigation of receiving graft in excess of Rs12 million from Ikram Naveed, the former CEO of the Punjab Power Development Company (PPDC).
The NAB investigator said the suspect had left the country in April and did not appear for hearings despite summons.
He pleaded before the court to declare the suspect a proclaimed offender and issue his arrest warrants.
Last month, the NAB chairman had issued arrest warrants of Yousaf and also requested the interior ministry to get him extradited via Interpol.
Accountability court judge Syed Najamul Hassan accepted the NAB request and declared Mr Yousaf a proclaimed offender.
