Pakistan court issue bailable arrest warrant against former PM Nawaz Sharif

Pakistan's anti-corruption court Thursday issued a bailable arrest warrant against ousted prime minister Nawaz Sharif in two cases of corruption cases from the Panama Papers leak. The accountability court issued the arrest warrant against Sharif after he failed to appear in the court in two graft cases - the Flagship Investment case and the Al-Azizia Steel Mills and Hill Metal Establishment case. Sharif is in London with his wife Kalsum who is undergoing cancer treatment, and has not returned to Pakistan for the court hearing since he was indicted in the graft allegations. The National Accountability Bureau on September 8 registered three cases against Sharif, his children and son- in-law in the Accountability Court here following a verdict by the Supreme Court, which disqualified him after an investigation into corruption allegations against his family.
