Key documents relating to Nawaz's warrants submitted in IHC

Islamabad High Court (IHC) Monday heard Al-Azizia and Avenfield references against Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) supremo and former Prime Minister (PM) Nawaz Sharif.

During the hearing, the representative of the federation has told that the government has received important documents from Pakistan High Commission in London on the arrest warrant of Nawaz Sharif.

The documents include online receipts of Royal Mail showing the warrants have been reached Nawaz Sharif.

The attested receipts on Royal Mail have been submitted to the Registrar Office court for further proceedings.

The hearing has been adjourned till October 7.

Earlier, the court had begun proceedings to declare Nawaz Sharif as a proclaimed offender in Al-Azizia and Avenfield references and decided to record testimonies of the officers who were given task for implementation of an arrest warrant of Nawaz Sharif through United Kingdom's County Court.

Notices to the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) and federal government were also issued to submit reply till October 7.

IHC had issued a non-bailable arrest warrant against Nawaz Sharif for September 22 and rejected his plea seeking exemption from the hearing.

The court had also directed the concerned authorities to initiate proceedings to declare him as proclaimed offender. PML-N supremo's petition to continue the case hearings through legal representative was also turned down by the IHC.
