Panama Papers case: Nawaz's son-in-law arrested on return to Pakistan

An accountability court on Monday granted bail to ousted Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif's daughter Maryam Nawaz over a reference filed against her by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) pertaining to London properties owned by the family. On the previous hearing the court had issued non-bailable arrest warrants against them yet they skipped the hearing yesterday. The judge ordered the NAB authorities to release Capt. Safdar after he too submitted surety bonds worth Rs. 5 million.

Earlier, before her departure for Islamabad from London on Sunday, Maryam Nawaz said that the so-called accountability of her family continuing for the past over one year was not for justice but for revenge.

On Monday, the NAB declared Sharif's sons, Hussain and Hassan, proclaimed offenders for repeatedly failing to appear before it.

Last week, Sharif appeared before the anti-corruption court but the tribunal had to delay his indictment to today after his children, who are co-defendants in the case, failed to appear.

Sharif and his sons Hasan and Hussain Nawaz will not be appearing and an application in this regard will be moved in the court. "We respect the rule of law and the Constitution", local media quoted Maryam as saying. The court has also directed to hear their case in separate trials.
