Another blow to Sharifs as Pakistan contacts Interpol to arrest Hassan, Hussain
The move came when the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) contacted the Ministry of Interior to take measures for extradition of Hassan and Hussain Nawaz, who have been declared absconder by and accountability court, following the issuance of their perpetual arrest warrants by an accountability court in the Avenfield case verdict.
The Avenfield case is one of the three reference filed by the anti-graft buster agency against members of Sharif family - the ex-premier, his sons, daughter Maryam Nawaz and son-in-law Captain (retd) Safdar - in the light of the Panama Papers case verdict. All these members of Sharif family are named in the Avenfield case, while Nawaz and his sons have been made respondents in all of them.
Last month, the trial court announced verdict in the London flats references, awarding sentences to Nawaz, Maryam and Safdar, who are currently serving their terms in the Adiala Jail. However, the sons of Sharif failed to appear before the court for their trial despite repeated summons.
