Maryam Nawaz, Captain (retd) Safdar to return to Pakistan tomorrow

Bailable arrest warrants have been issued against Maryam, her brothers, Captain (retd) Safdar


LAHORE: Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s daughter Maryam Nawaz and son-in-law Captain (retd) Safdar will reach Islamabad from London Sunday morning.

Maryam and Safdar were required to appear before the accountability court earlier in the month over the corruption references filed against them in the Panama case. Bailable arrest warrants were re-issued against Maryam, Safdar, Hassan and Hussain after they did not appear before the court on October 2. They had also been directed to submit surety bonds worth Rs1 million each.

Nawaz's personal secretary, Qamar Zaman, received the warrants from the six-member team led by a deputy director, which acted on the orders of the accountability court.

At present, Hasan, Hussain and Maryam Nawaz are in London tending to their mother, Begum Kulsoom Nawaz, who is undergoing treatment for lymphoma. Safdar is also in London.

Kulsoom Nawaz left for London before the NA-120 by-elections took place.
