The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has summoned former prime minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi on Thursday (July 18) in the Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) contract case.
The former prime minister faces corruption charges and awarding an LNG import contract at exorbitant rates in 2015, resulting in heavy losses for the national treasury. The sources said he had granted a tender worth 220 billion rupees to a company in which he was himself a shareholder.
His name is also on the Exit Control List (ECL).
Abbasi is also accused of misusing his authority during his term as Minister of Petroleum. The file was registered in a complaint filed by energy expert Shahid Sattar, a former member of the Planning Commission and the Board of Directors of SSGC, on July 29, 2015.
