Non-bailable arrest warrants issued for Nawaz Sharif in plot allotment case

An accountability court issued non-bailable arrest warrants for Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) founder Nawaz Sharif in plot allotment case.

Accountability court Judge Asad Ali on Thursday (today), heard the 34-year old plot allotment case against the former Prime Minister.

During the hearing Inspector Bashir Ahmed submitted a report citing PML-N Deputy Secretary Atta Ullah Tarar stating that Nawaz Sharif is not in Pakistan and is currently in Pakistan and is in London for medical treatment.

The court has directed Foreign Ministry to reach out to Pakistan’s High Commission in London for the implementation of the warrant.

National Accountability Court (NAB) has accused Nawaz Sharif of illegally allotting 54-kanal land to Mir Shakeel-ur-Rehman – owner and editor in chief of a national media house, back in 1986.

Earlier Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Teusday, had directed former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to surrender before court till September 9th in Avenfield case.
