ISLAMABAD: NAB Rawalpindi/Islamabad has written a letter to the Airport Security Force demanding access to former premier Nawaz Sharif's flight to execute his bailable arrest warrants.

According to the letter written to the chief of Airport Security Force, the accountability bureau sought access to Nawaz Sharif's flight when the former premier returns to the country at the Benazir Bhutto International Airport in Islamabad.

The letter stated that NAB Rawalpindi/Islamabad wished to comply with the orders of the court to bring Nawaz Sharif to the accountability court.

The accountability court had on Thursday started trial of former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, his daughter Maryam Nawaz and her husband Captain (retd) Safdar in corruption references filed by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB).

The warrants were issued in NAB’s Azizia Steel Mills reference and Flagship Investment Limited reference.

Two out of 26 NAB’s prosecution witnesses appeared in the court where NAB team was also present.

Ousted Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, who was charge-sheeted by the court last week in all three NAB references, did not turn up at the court since he is in Saudi Arabia; however, his lawyer Khawaja Haris attended the hearing.

As the hearing begun, Nawaz Sharif’s lawyer Khawaja Haris filed an application of his client seeking exemption from personal appearance in the court for seven days.

The court first reserved its decision on the plea, and later announced to dismiss Sharif’s plea. The court issued bailable arrest warrants for him before adjourning the hearing till Nov 3.
