Non-bailable arrest warrants issued for Sharif children

ISLAMABAD, OCT 02 (DNA) – An accountability court in Islamabad issued non-bailable warrants of arrest on Monday against the premier’s three children and son-in-law.

Judge Muhammad Bashir issued directions to arrest and produce Maryam, Hassan, Hussain and Capt Safdar before the court on the next date of hearing. The next hearing is scheduled for October 9.

This morning Nawaz appeared before the accountability court for a second time and was likely to be indicted. However, proceedings were adjourned till next Monday.

The former premier’s children were summoned before the court for hearing of references filed by the National Accountability Bureau. However, they were unable to appear as they are still in London tending to their mother, who is undergoing cancer treatment.

Nawaz returned to Pakistan last week after spending more than three weeks in London and went straight into several consultation sessions with party leaders about his future plans. He left for London on August 30 days after his wife, Kulsoom Nawaz, was diagnosed with lymph node cancer. Since then, she had undergone three surgeries in the British capital, with Sharif and their sons beside her.
