Nawaz Sharif's sons declared proclaimed offenders by NAB court

However, the court rejected Maryam Nawaz’s plea seeking changes in her earlier exemption plea.

An accountability court Monday declared Hassan Nawaz and Hussain Nawaz, the sons of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, as proclaimed offenders for avoiding the legal proceedings.

The cases were registered by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on September 8 against Sharif, his family in the Accountability Court Islamabad, following a verdict by Supreme Court in the Panama Papers case.

The accountability court had previously dismissed the petition, on the same matter, after which Nawaz filed an appeal at the IHC. According to Nawaz's counsel Khawaja Haris, IHC is expected to announce its judgement in the afternoon today.

In line with the rules contained in NAB Ordinance, the process of recording statements against the two suspects has been initiated.

On November 15, the court had passed similar order declaring ex-prime minister's sons as absconders, ruling that they are skipping court proceedings on regular basis which is unaccepted.

Earlier, the judge granted bail to Maryam Nawaz and her spouse retired Captain Muhammad Safdar against a surety bond of Rs5 million each.

NAB had informed the court that Lahore Development Authority (LDA) and Defence Housing Authority (DHA), Deputy Commissioner Lahore and Bahria Town have provided to details of Hussain's properties.

Nawaz's petition pleads the IHC to direct the accountability court "to frame one charge and conduct a single trial" against the Sharif family in the three corruption references.

The accountability court said that arrest warrants of both the Sharif family will be maintained.

Heavy security arrangements were made and hundreds of security personnel deployed around the court premises. Dar had been relieved of his duties after the ailing politician, who was declared a proclaimed absconder by a court in the case, requested leave for three months.
