ISLAMABAD: The accountability court on Tuesday ordered that shares of former PM nawaz Sharif’s sons, Hassan Nawaz and Hussain Nawaz, in six companies be frozen.

Hearing a case against the two, the court on Tuesday ordered Securities & Exchange Commission of Pakistan (SECP) to freeze the shares of Hassan and Hussain in six companies.

On Tuesday, a NAB prosecutor, Afzal Qureshi, submitted a report pertaining to the shares of Hassan and Hussain in six companies.

The case was adjourned till November 14.

Non-bailable warrants of arrest were issued for Hassan and Hussain earlier this month for failing to appear before the court.

Last month, NAB filed four corruption references against the Sharif family and Finance Minister Ishaq Dar with the accountability court. The references were prepared in light of the July 28 judgement of the Supreme Court in the Panamagate case.
