ISLAMABAD: The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) in its annual report issued this week has said that the proceedings were facing delay due to non-cooperation of foreign countries in the cases.

“As many as 50 letters were sent to different countries in one year asking the extradition of seven wanted suspects, but only five of them [countries] answered the letters,” said NAB report.

Further details suggest that the anti-graft body sought particulars of incarcerated former premier Nawaz Sharif’s assets from the authorities of England, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

It has been learnt that only one country out of these responded to the NAB’s letters and asked for further information which has been provided. Saudi Arabia did not reply to a single correspondence, the report said.
