An accountability court has dispatched bailable arrest warrants for deposed prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s three children and his son-in-law’s London residence address, Express News reported on Thursday.
The accountability court in Islamabad on Tuesday summoned Maryam Nawaz, Hassan Nawaz, Hussain Nawaz and Captain (retd) Mohammad Safdar to appear before the court on October 2.
None of the Nawaz’s children were present in the court. Judge Muhammad Bashir had issued bailable warrants against a surety of Rs1 million each for the arrest of Nawaz’s children and Safdar for failure to attend the previous hearing on September 19.
The warrants, which were sent to London through Pakistan High Commission, inscribed with the addresses of the Sharif family’s Avenfield apartments in the British capital.
A copy of the warrants was also sent to their residence in Lahore.
The ousted premier Nawaz Sharif on September 26 made his first appearance before the accountability court hearing graft references against him and his children.
The reference was filed by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on the orders of the Supreme Court. He will be formally charged on October 2, the next date of hearing in the case.
The ousted premier was disqualified from holding public office by the top court on July 28 in the Panama Papers case judgment due to concealed assets. The apex court also ordered the country’s top graft buster to file corruption references against Sharif, his two sons, daughter, and son-in-law.
