Accountability Court Suspends Arrest Warrants of Hasan and Hussain Nawaz

Rate this post

An accountability court in Islamabad has suspended the arrest warrants of Hasan Nawaz and Hussain Nawaz, the sons of former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, in the Al-Azizia, Flagship, and Avenfield cases. The decision was announced by Judge Nasir Javed Rana, who reserved the verdict earlier today, suspending the warrants until March 14.

The warrants were initially issued seven years ago when the court declared them absconders. In today’s hearing, both brothers were represented by their lawyer Qazi Misbah, while NAB prosecutors Sardar Muzaffar, Usman Masood, and Sohail Arif also appeared.

The plea for suspension of the warrants was filed as both brothers plan to return to Pakistan on March 12. Misbah argued that all other accused in the cases had been acquitted, and Hasan and Hussain wished to return to Pakistan this month, requesting the court to suspend their perpetual warrants.

NAB prosecutor Arif emphasized that the accused should appear in court as per the law, stating that the purpose of the warrant is to bring the accused to court. He insisted that both brothers should be given a chance to appear before the accountability court.

After completion of arguments, the accountability court reserved its decision on the petitions. The outcome of this decision will determine the next steps in the legal proceedings concerning the Nawaz brothers’ cases.
