Accountability court grants bail to Sharif's daughter

Dr Asim

Sharif's daughter Maryam Nawaz and her husband Muhammad Safdar, former army captain, returned from London to attend the latest hearing.

The accountability court had issued a non-bailable arrest warrant after Safdar after he failed to appear on previous hearings despite notices. The judge however rejected the plea and granted bail to the couple against a surety bond of Rs 5 million ($47,000) each.

Asked whether her brothers would return to Pakistan to face the NAB references against them, she said, "Hassan and Hussain would themselves tell you about their decision".

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.

Maryam will appear in an accountability court on Monday for the hearing of three references related to the Panamagate case.

According to legal experts, in such a situation the accountability court may separate the case of the present accused or deem those absent as absconders.

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. "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", a leading news channel quoted her as saying. "But here the case which was started from Panama ended on Iqama and these cases would continue till the Day of Judgment". "The judges would have to answer it", she said referring to dismissal of Sharif for non-declaration of his salary from his son's company in the UAE.

She arrived at the court accompanied by senior Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leaders and ministers. "Those who sent home representative of 20 crore people should also be brought to justice", she said. The cases were filed after the July 28 verdict by the Supreme Court which disqualified Sharif.
