NAB summons Sharjeel Memon in fake accounts case


The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on Monday summoned PPP leader and former Sindh minister Sharjeel Memon for questioning in connection with its ongoing investigation into the fake accounts scam.

According to details, he is required to turn up before the bureau’s Rawalpindi office on June 22.

Sharjeel Memon will likely be quizzed about his alleged involvement in financial wrongdoings during his stint as the Sindh local government minister. He is also accused of taking kickbacks, the bureau said.

The PPP leader is facing a number of cases, including ones related to a multi-billion scam in the Sindh information department and owning more assets than his known sources of income justify.

PPP Leader Sharjeel Memon and 16 others have been charged with misappropriating advertisement funds of the information department to the tune of Rs5.76 billion.—INP
