ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court Registrar Office has provided to the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) three more certified copies of nine volumes of the Joint Investigation Team (JIT) report on the murky business dealings of the Sharif family.

Last month, a five-member judge of the apex court unanimously disqualified Nawaz Sharif from holding any public office and directed NAB to file references against Sharif, his sons, daughter, son-in-law and Ishaq Dar.

The Registrar Office, however, once again declined a NAB request for copies of Volume 10 of the JIT report.

“Please furnish the complete set of [the] JIT report along with annexure for filing of the references before the accountability court,” the NAB had said in an application submitted to the top court.

Earlier, the NAB had been provided with one certified copy of the nine volumes of the JIT report in response to its request.

The top anti-graft watchdog said it needed at least three more certified and complete copies, including those of Volume 10, to finalise references in accordance with the Supreme Court verdict.

The Volume 10 of the report contains details of mutual legal assistance (MLA) with various countries.

Sources told The Express Tribune that NAB would file another request in the apex court, seeking an original copy of  Volume 10 of the JIT report.

ishrat salim | 5 years ago | Reply SC should not give vol 10 to NAB, they have lost many original papers and documents pertaining to mega scandals especially Zardari Swiss documents.NAB trying to hoodwink SC.
Mukhtar | 5 years ago | Reply NAB is more interested in volume 10? Why? There is enough material in the 9 Volumes. Some thing seems fishy. Supreme court should take strict action if NAB uses delaying tactics.
