The National Accountability Bureau may file a reference against former finance minister Dr Hafeez Sheikh and former chairpersons of the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) — Abdullah Yousaf and Salman Siddique — for misusing authority, resulting in the loss of $11 million to the national exchequer.

NAB’s Regional Board Karachi recommended filing the reference after a meeting chaired by Karachi NAB DG Dr Najaf Quli Mirza. It also recommended to the chairman NAB to file a reference against former officers of land utilization department, Board of Revenue Sindh, including former member Ghulam Mustafa Phul.

Dr Hafeez was given the portfolio of adviser and asked to perform duties of finance minister on Dec 10, 2020, by Prime Minister Imran Khan.
