Interpol responds over Pakistan Red Warrants request against Hussain Nawaz
LONDON: Interpol responds over Pakistan Red Warrants request against Hussain Nawaz.
The Interpol has refused to issue red warrants for the arrest and extradition of Hussain Nawaz Sharif on the application of Pakistani government, dealing a big blow to the international efforts made by the current government against the family of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif.
This correspondent has seen official papers, which confirm that the decision to reject the application against Hussain Nawaz was made by the Interpol’s commission, comprised of five members and headed by its chairperson, during its 10th session.
Papers show that Pakistani authorities made robust representations to the international body, relying on the recent court decision against Nawaz Sharif, Maryam Nawaz and Captain (retd) Safdar, but it failed to convince the Interpol for the issuance of red warrants against the oldest son of the former prime minister.
Pakistan made representations through the Interpol’s National Central Bureau (NCB) in Islamabad.
