NAB court issues non-bailable arrest warrants for Sharif’s children, son-in-law


ISLAMABAD: Ousted prime minister Nawaz Sharif on Monday left the accountability court without being indicted in three graft cases prepared by National Accountability Bureau (NAB) against him and his family.
During the hearing, the PML-N lawyer argued that all of the accused in the case have to appear in court before an indictment can take place. Nawaz, his children — Hussain, Hassan, and Maryam — and Captain Safdar are expected to appear in court on October 9 and be indicted in the corruption cases.
Non-bailable arrest warrants have been issued for Nawaz Sharif’s children and son-in-law. The court ordered police to arrest all the accused and produce them before it in the next hearing.
While speaking to the media, PML-N lawyer Khawaja Haris said, “Nawaz Sharif’s children have no problem with appearing in court; they have been unable to do so as their mother is ill and they are all in London.”
The lawyers of the Sharif’s children and son-in-law said that their clients would appear before the court in the next hearing on Oct 9.
Earlier, former prime minster Nawaz Sharif appeared in the accountability court in three NAB references. The hearing adjourned until Oct 9.
