Dual citizenship: Court issues arrest warrants for Nadia Gabol, Farahnaz Ispahani


KARACHI: A sessions court on Thursday issued arrest warrants for former member of the National Assembly (MNA) Farahnaz Isphani and ex-member Sindh Provincial Assembly (MPA) Nadia Gabol in connection with a dual nationality case.

The court heard the case in which the two former lawmakers failed to appear despite repeated summons.

The court, while issuing the arrest warrants due to the lawmakers’ repeated absence, ordered that the two should be produced before it on September 23.

During the hearing, Farahnaz Ispahani’s advocate said that his client is abroad for medical treatment.

Earlier, the court had rejected the acquittal pleas filed by Gabol and Ispahani.

The memberships of Nadia Gabol and Farahnaz Ispahani were suspended by the Supreme Court of Pakistan in July 2012. The ECP had disqualified 11 lawmakers in relation to the dual nationality case under the apex court.
