Former Pakistani Prime Minister's son-in-law held by anti-corruption authorities

Court to declare Nawaz sons fugitives

The court also approved bails of Mr Sharif's daughter Maryam Nawaz and his son-in-law Mohammed Safdar after their appearances in references filed by National Accountability Bureau (NAB) over Panama leaks case.

Meanwhile, the NAB prosecution asked the court to issue arrest warrants for Nawaz Sharif, who they said had left for London, despite being a primary accused, without informing the NAB authorities.

On Monday, the court adjourned the cases till October 13 summoning Nawaz, Maryam and Safdar for indictment, besides separating cases of Hassan and Hussain.

However, Sharif and his two sons were absent as they are in London where 67-year-old Sharif's wife is battling throat cancer.

Maryam, who is being groomed as Sharif's political successor, appeared in the court for the first time today.

Former premier Nawaz Sharif's son-in-law Muhammad Safdar was arrested by Pakistan's anti-corruption watchdog on his return to the country from the United Kingdom though he was granted bail along with his wife on Monday.

The trial judge had earlier issued non-bailable warrants for the arrest of Safdar and Sharif's two sons for failing to appear in court in the last hearing held on October 2.

The judge barred Safdar from leaving Pakistan without its permission but rejected the NAB's request to confiscate his passport.

Hassan and Hussain, who are facing corruption cases in Pakistan, are residing in London.

After appearing before the court here, Maryam told the media that her family was being tried despite already receiving the punishment - the disqualification of her father Nawaz Sharif.

Maryam Nawaz said it was revenge and not accountability.

Zardari addressed workers of Pakistan People's Party in capital of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province and said that Imran Khan could not handle dengue outbreak in the province, how could he run the country.

The NAB is sending its team in pursuance of the letters it had written to the United Kingdom authorities in connection with the mutual legal agreement, the Dawn quoted official sources, as saying. The court also ordered opening of multiple corruption cases against Sharif and his family.
