Nawaz Sharif

A Pakistani court on Thursday issued bailable warrants against deposed Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif after he failed to appear before the court in connection with three corruption references filed by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB). The accountability court, conducting trial of Sharif family in connection with the three NAB references, dismissed the ousted premier’s application seeking exemption from personal appearance and put a surety giver on notice for November 3.

Judge Accountability Court Muhammad Bashir while dismissing the application issued warrants for Nawaz Sharif in two references and issued notice to a surety giver in the third reference as he remarked that the application could only be treated as adjournment plea. In the application, Nawaz Sharif through his counsel Khawaja Haris said that he had not been able to return to Pakistan because his wife’s medical condition had deteriorated.
