Pakistan court issues arrest warrant against former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif

The court had also summoned Nawaz in two other NAB references.

The bailable warrants were issued for the Flagship Investment case and the Al-Azizia Steel Mills and Hill Metal Establishment case.

Nawaz Sharif was disqualified by the Supreme Court in July for not declaring a source of income that he disputes receiving.

The three-time Prime Minister found himself besieged by problems after Panama papers showed illegal money laundering by him in 1990s when he twice served as Prime Minister to purchase assets in London.

Both Maryam and Safdar appeared in the court to face the trial in Avenfield apartments case, but Sharif skipped the hearing as he is in Saudi Arabia after visiting his ailing wife, Kulsoom Nawaz, in London.

NAB has filed three references against Nawaz Sharif and his children.

When asked to comment on the ongoing process of "VIP accountability", the former premier's daughter shot back that they are appearing in court despite her mother's ill health and her father's questionable disqualification so how could this be termed "VIP accountability".

The ousted Prime Minister's sons Hassan and Hussain Nawaz were named co-accused in the chargesheet in the references.

The court had summoned former prime minister, his daughter Maryam Nawaz and son-in-law Captain (retd) Safdar for trial in the Avenfield apartments case.

A similar has also been submitted in the Supreme Court of Pakistan by ex-PM Sharif, seeking consolidation of three concurrent graft references.

The Islamabad-based court wrapped up the first hearing in the Sharif family's London flats case after grilling the former leader's guranteer about his absence from the hearing, reports Dawn news.

On the other hand, ex-PM Sharif and his two sons - Hasan and Hussain Nawaz - have been nominated in two references regarding the Aziza Steel Mills, Hill Metals Establishment, and almost dozen other companies owned by the Sharif family.

Sharif has faced - and come back from - similar challenges in the past.
