Captain (R) Safdar approaches IHC against NAB Court

ISLAMABAD - Captain (retd) Safdar on Thursday approached the Islamabad High Court challenging his impending indictment in a corruption reference.

Capt (retd) Safdar, through his counsel, filed a petition in IHC requesting it to stop the accountability court from indicting him on October 13 (tomorrow).

In his petition, he stated that according to law a period of seven days is allowed before indictment.

Nawaz, his daughter Maryam, and son-in-law MNA Capt (retd) Safdar are expected to be indicted by the accountability court hearing corruption cases against them on Friday.

At the last hearing, on October 9, the accountability court approved the bail of Maryam and Safdar after they appeared in court.

Mohammad Bashir also approved the National Accountability Bureau's (NAB) plea to declare Nawaz's sons, Hasan and Hussain, proclaimed offenders and separated their proceedings in the three references filed against them. Their non-bailable arrest warrants, issued at the last hearing on October 2, remain in effect.
