Panamagate: Nawaz Sharif to be indicted on Oct 13

Panamagate: Nawaz Sharif to be indicted on Oct 13

Pakistan's National Accountability Bureau (NAB) that is now probing ousted prime minister Nawaz Sharif and his family members for graft has granted bail to Maryam, Sharif's daughter, and her husband, Captain Muhammad Safdar on Monday. On the previous hearing the court had issued non-bailable arrest warrants against them yet they skipped the hearing on Monday.

An Accountability Court in Islamabad will announce the indictment of former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, Maryam Nawaz and Captain (retd) Muhammad Safdar on October 13 while Hassan Nawaz and Hussain Nawaz have been declared as proclaimed offenders.

Sharif and his two sons were absent during the hearing as they are in London to attend his wife Kulsoom who is battling throat cancer. "Those who have sent packing representatives of 200 million people should also be held accountable", she said while talking to the media after her court appearance.

The NAB was ordered to take action against the Sharif family, including the ousted premier's sons Hassan and Hussain, by the Supreme Court when it disqualified Sharif on July 28.

The NAB said that since there has been no extradition treaty between Pakistan and the UK, Sharif's sons may not be brought back here to face the three corruption and money laundering cases against them.

Accountability Judge Mohammad Bashir reserved his decision on the former Prime Minister's application.




The court also barred Captain Safdar from leaving Pakistan without the court's permission.

Amid slogans by the PML-N supporters, Maryam Nawaz left the airport for the residence of PML-N leader Chaudhry Muneer, reports said. Maryam was with him but she was not arrested.

The body also froze the bank accounts and seized properties of the Sharif family.

After hearing arguments from the prosecution, the court accepted bail of both Maryam and her husband.

She said judges will have to be answerable.

Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz workers obstructed the path of the vehicle carrying Safdar as they lay on the road.
