The National Accountability Bureau arrested on Sunday the chief financial officer of the Sharif Group of Companies in Lahore in connection with a money laundering case against the Sharif family.
Usman managed the Sharif family’s accounts, according to the anti-corruption watchdog. He is a key suspect in the case.
NAB is investigating members of the Sharif family in multiple cases. In May, it had prepared a new reference against Nawaz Sharif, Shehbaz Sharif and Maryam Nawaz.
A NAB representative said at the time that the Sharifs had been accused of laundering Rs7 billion.
