The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on Friday filed its first progress report regarding the references against the Sharif family and Ishaq Dar to Justice Ijazul Ahsan, who has been appointed the supervisory judge on the matter by the Supreme Court, DawnNews reported.

The report includes the order-sheets issued by the accountability bureau and copies of the warrants issues against children of the former prime minister.

A list of witnesses was also provided to the supervisory judge, DawnNews reported.

DawnNews further reported that NAB Prosecutor General Waqas Qadeer Dar met Justice Ahsan and informed him about the difficulties faced during the entry to the accountability court.

Earlier this week, Nawaz appeared before a NAB court in connection with the three corruption references.

The court also issued bailable arrest warrants for Sharif's children Hassan, Hussain, and Maryam, and for son-in-law Captain Safdar. The court directed them to submit surety bonds worth Rs1 million each to secure bail.

NAB's legal team also requested the court to order the interior ministry to place Sharif's name on the exit control list.
