Arrest warrant against Sharif for failing to appear in court in corruption case

ISLAMABAD, May 30: An accountability court in Pakistan has issued an arrest warrant against embattled former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, who is currently in London for medical treatment, for failing to appear before it in a corruption case that accused him of receiving luxury vehicles and gifts from the national treasury.
The court in Islamabad on Friday heard the case against Sharif, former president Asif Ali Zardari and former premier Yusuf Raza Gilani for allegedly receiving luxury vehicles and other gifts presented by foreign dignitaries, which were property of the state.
The country's anti-graft body National Accountability Bureau (NAB) filed the case on March 2 and Judge Syed Asghar Ali on May 15 issued summons for the three leaders as well other accused -- Khawaja Anwar Majeed and Abdul Ghani Majeed of the Omni Group.
Gillani and Ghani appeared before the court whereas Sharif and Zardari did not.    -PTI
