Court sends warrants to Nawaz’s children, Safdar at London residence


An accountability court on Thursday has mailed bailable arrest warrants to ousted prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s children, Hussain Nawaz, Hassan Nawaz and Maryam Nawaz, and his son-in-law Muhammad Safdar at their London residence.

Due to their failure to appear in the court on the previous hearing, the court had issued bailable arrest warrants against them on a surety bond of Rs1 million. The court had asked them to appear before it on October 2.

A copy of the warrants was also sent to their residence in Lahore.

The warrants, which were sent to London through Pakistan High Commission, inscribed with the addresses of the Sharif family’s Avenfield apartments, London.

Nawaz Sharif appeared before the court on September 26 over a corruption case filed against him the NAB. Following the Panamagate judgement of July 28, NAB filed four references against the Sharif family and Ishaq Dar on the directions of the Supreme Court.
