Nawaz Sharif’s Sons Set to Return, Court Receives Pleas to Suspend Arrest Warrants

Rate this post

In a significant development, the counsel for former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, Qazi Misbah, informed the accountability court that Nawaz Sharif’s sons, Hasan and Hussain Nawaz, are scheduled to return to Pakistan on March 12. The announcement was made during the hearing of the Toshakhana reference, wherein Nawaz Sharif, Pakistan Peoples Party’s Co-Chairman Asif Ali Zardari, and former Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gillani are accused of violating Toshakhana rules by retaining various vehicles.

Misbah revealed that Hasan and Hussain Nawaz intend to appear before the court, addressing concerns about their absence in multiple references, including Avenfield, Al Azizia, and Flagship. Consequently, separate appeals seeking the suspension of their arrest warrants in these cases were filed.

In response to Misbah’s request, the court issued notices to Nawaz Sharif’s sons for a hearing tomorrow, with no objection from Prosecutor Usman Masood.

Additionally, the court summoned the investigation officer to appear on March 19 regarding the Toshakhana case, which alleges that Nawaz Sharif and Asif Ali Zardari obtained cars from the gift depository by paying only 15% of the price.

While Nawaz Sharif’s properties, vehicles, and bank accounts were unseized following his return to Pakistan in October, the Toshakhana case implicates Zardari for receiving cars as gifts during his presidency, and Gillani for facilitating Sharif and Zardari in this matter.

Moreover, the case involves Khawaja Anwar Majeed and Khawaja Abdul Ghani Majeed, owners of the Omni Group, accused of corruption under the NAB Ordinance. The former premier has challenged his conviction in the Supreme Court, seeking its nullification in the Toshakhana case.

The impending return of Nawaz Sharif’s sons and the legal proceedings surrounding the Toshakhana reference underscore the ongoing scrutiny faced by prominent political figures in Pakistan’s accountability landscape.
