The reference had been filed against the Sharif Family by the country’s “National Accountability Bureau (NAB).” Here, it is important to note that while the Sharif family members were indicted today (Thursday), neither Nawaz Sharif is in Pakistan, nor is his lead defence counsel i.e. Khawaja Haris; both are in London right now.
