Accountability Court to issue non bailable arrest warrants for Sharif children

ISLAMABAD - The accountability court may issue ‘non-bailable’ arrest warrants for Sharif children in defiance of the court orders to turn up before it in a graft reference filed against them by National Accountability Bureau (NAB), sources further said.

Currently, most of the Sharif family members are in London.

In a video message on Thursday, Sharif’s daughter Maryam Nawaz said her mother is recovering.

Earlier today, Sharif – who is in Pakistan – had visited his father’s final resting place in Lahore along with his younger brother and Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif.

In a brief interaction with the party workers, he appealed them to pray for his wife’s early recovery, who has recently undergone two surgeries for throat cancer.

Sharif said his children are in London and will come back to Pakistan once their mother’s health recovers.

After their persistent failure to show up in the previous hearings in the NAB graft reference, the accountability court had issued their bailable arrest warrants, which were also dispatched to Pakistani High Commissioner in London last week.
