NAB team to collect evidence of Sharif properties from London

Nawaz arrives to meet the AJK prime minister

Pakistan's anti-corruption authorities today arrested the son-in-law of ousted prime minister Nawaz Sharif from an airport here in connection with corruption cases pending against him.

The accountability court in Islamabad yesterday declared the sons of Sharif proclaimed offenders for repeatedly failing to appear before it. The judge also ordered NAB authorities to release Capt Safdar.

When asked whether her brothers will appear before the court, she said they live overseas and Pakistan's laws aren't applicable on them. "It is up to them if they want to appear before the court or not", Maryam, who is touted as Sharif's political successor, told reporters outside the court.

Returning from London, where Nawaz Sharif's wife is being treated for throat cancer, the couple are reportedly here to appear before an anti-graft tribunal in connection with the NAB reference pertaining to London properties owned by their family.

According to legal experts, in such a situation the accountability court may separate the case of the present accused or deem those absent as absconders.

Sharif and his sons Hasan and Hussain Nawaz will not be appearing and an application in this regard will be moved in the court.




The court also barred Captain Safdar from leaving Pakistan without the court's permission.

Maryam had run a successful campaign for the PML-N while her mother received medical treatment in London, resulting in PML-N securing Nawaz's "home seat" in NA-120.

She said she was going to the test the judicial system of Pakistan.

The NAB has also written to the interior ministry to get Hassan and Hussain's red warrants issued through Interpol.

"We are not among those who worry about arrests", the Dawn quoted Maryam, as saying. She criticised the judges for disqualifying her father in the Panama Papers case.

"When they could not find any evidence, they disqualified him on the Iqama (work permit) issue", she contended.
