Nawaz's son-in-law arrested on return to Pakistan

The arrest follows issuance of non-bailable warrants by the accountability court for Capt Safdar after he failed to appear on previous hearings despite notices.

It also issued their perpetual warrants and separated their trial from Nawaz Sharif, Maryam and her husband Captain (retired) Mohmmad Safdar.

Hussain and Hassan left for London to be with their mother, Kulsoom, who is battling throat cancer.

Though the former prime minister had reservations over the entire process, the state minister said, they appeared before the courts to show respect for the Constitution and law.

NAB has named him in one of three corruption cases filed on September 8 against Pakistan's former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, his daughter Maraym, sons Husain and Hasan and his son-in-law Safdar.

The trial judge had earlier issued non-bailable warrants for the arrest of Captain Safdar and Hassan Nawaz and Hussain Nawaz for failing to appear in court in the last hearing held on Oct 2.

A team comprising 3 to 4 members will visit foreign countries under mutual legal agreement to collect crucial evidence for Sharif family assets. The court also asked him to seek its permission before going overseas and rejected the NAB request to confiscate his passport.

The court has set October 13 for indictment of Nawaz Sharif, Maryam and Safdar. The path of the vehicle carrying Safdar was obstructed by Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz workers, as they lay on the road.

"Those who want to appear by free will are arrested from airport, but we are not afraid of it", she said.

Deputy Prosecutor General of the NAB Chaudhry Khaliquz Zaman said since Sharif's sons had been declared proclaimed offenders, there properties and bank accounts in Pakistan will be attached (frozen). She criticised the judges for disqualifying her father in the Panama Papers case. "But here the case which was started from Panama ended on Iqama and these cases would continue till the Day of Judgment".
