The Lahore High Court (LHC) today directed the country’s anti-graft watchdog to notify Pakistan Muslim Leaguer-N vice president Maryam Nawaz 10 days in advance prior issuing her arrest warrant.
Maryam Nawaz today appeared at the court for hearing of the Jati Umra case. A two-member bench of Justice Sardar Sarfaraz Dogar and Justice Asjad Javed Gheral heard the case.
During the hearing, the judge asked the National Accountability Bureau’s special prosecutor “Have you issued arrest warrants [for Maryam Nawaz]?”
To this, the NAB special prosecutor responded responded “the bureau had not done so.”
Subsequent to this, Maryam’s counsel, Advocate Azam Tarar, requested the court to restrain NAB from issuing his client’s arrest warrants without informing 10 days in advance.
Moreover, the bench told Maryam’s counsel that he can approach the court if the arrest warrants are issued without informing 10 days in advance.
