NAB team to collect evidence of Sharif properties from London

On Oct. 2, the anti-corruption court, which is trying Sharif's family in four different corruption cases, had issued non-bailable arrest warrants for his two sons and son-in-law, and bailable warrants for his daughter Maryam for deliberately avoiding the court proceedings.

The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) lawyers asked the court to send Safdar to jail on judicial remand but the court granted him bail and ordered him to pay Rs 50,000 for surety bonds.

Maryam Nawaz appeared in the Islamabad court on Monday morning, while her husband who arrived in the country earlier in the day, reached the court later.

Ousted Pakistan prime minister Nawaz Sharifs two sons, now in London, may not appear before the anti-corruption court, taking advantage of their foreign residency, leaders of the ruling PML-N have indicated.

The next court hearing is on October 13, when members of the Sharif family will be indicted.

The judge barred Safdar from leaving Pakistan without its permission but rejected the NAB's request to confiscate his passport.

Maryam had run a successful campaign for the PML-N while her mother received medical treatment in London, resulting in PML-N securing Nawaz's "home seat" in NA-120. The court also chose to separate the trial of Hussain and Hassan from that of Sharif and his daughter and son-in-law. "I do not need to say anything here, the way things have been going on over the past year and a half has revealed the truth to the nation", the Dawn quoted her as saying.

Talking to reporters after a hearing on Monday, Maryam Nawaz said that her brothers would make their own decision regarding their appearance before the court.

The body also froze the bank accounts and seized properties of the Sharif family. She criticised the judges for disqualifying her father in the Panama Papers case. "Those who sent home representative of 20 crore people should also be brought to justice", she said.

Nawaz Sharif was dismissed as prime minister in July for allegedly hiding a source of income "he disputes receiving", according to Reuters.
