ISLAMABAD: The National Accountability Bureau has decided to start the legal process to auction the assets of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif with filing an application with the Accountability Court Islamabad to sell the attached properties of Nawaz Sharif. The NAB took the decision as Nawaz Sharif was declared proclaimed offender in the Toshakhana reference. The accountability court in its order of 1-1-2020 had ordered the attachment of the properties of Nawaz Sharif. However, Nawaz Sharif did not surrender to the court even six months after the order of attachment of properties.
