Shujaat, Elahi appear before NAB in corruption reference

PML-Q leaders Chaudhry Shujaat and Pervaiz Elahi on Friday appeared before the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) Lahore in connection with graft cases.
According to sources in the NAB, the Chaudhry cousins were presented with questionnaires relating to their own assets, assets of family members, sources of income and expenditure on elections they contested in.
While talking to the media after the visit, Elahi said that they were ready to face all cases against them just as they had faced them previously.
The two leaders had been summoned by NAB for the second time regarding alleged misuse of authority and funds worth Rs2.43 billion after references against them were approved by newly-appointed NAB Chairman Javed Iqbal.
The corruption case against the Chaudhrys of Gujrat is among the 179 mega corruption scandals currently outstanding, a list of which was compiled by NAB and submitted to the Supreme Court in July 2015.
