ISLAMABAD - Interpol, while rejecting the Federal Investigation Agency’s request, stated that the Hassan and Hussain are politically exposed personalities, hence their red warrants can not be issued.
The FIA has also informed the interior ministry and high officials in this regard.
In July last year, the accountability court had declared both of Sharif’s sons as proclaimed offenders and ordered issuance of non-bailable perpetual warrants for their arrest in the Avenfield reference.
In the same judgement, announced by Judge Muhammad Bashir, the court sentenced ousted premier to 10 years rigorous imprisonment, his daughter Maryam to seven years rigorous imprisonment and son-in-law, Captain (retd) Muhammad Safdar, to one-year rigorous imprisonment.
Subsequently, the FIA submitted an application to the Interpol headquarters in France with the request to issue red warrant of Hassan and Hussain.
