Sharif Family to get worst blow from Caretaker government

*ISLAMABAD: *Caretaker Minister for Law Barrister Ali Zafar on Friday said the federal government would initiate the process for the confiscation of Avenfield apartments to implement the accountability court in letter and spirit, adding that the process would commence from Monday when the offices in London will open.

Talking to *Pakistan Today*, the minister said the federal government would initiate the process on Monday. “We will have to apply for the confiscation of Avenfield apartments in line with the court verdict. We will have to move immediately, so the accused are not able to get a stay order from any court in London against the court verdict,” he added.

Asked whether the federal government would also move to bring back Nawaz Sharif, Hassan Nawaz, Hussain Nawaz, Ishaq Dar and other accused, the minister said the federal government would make contacts with Interpol to bring back all the accused.

“We would have to implement the verdict and we will move on Monday. Bringing back Pakistani nationals is easy but for a foreign national, the procedure is bit complex and also would take time.”

On whether the federal government would oppose any effort by the Sharif family to seek bail from the court, Ali Zafar said the NAB would oppose any bail plea if the accused file it.
