ISLAMABAD: The accountability court has issued bailable arrest warrants for Asif Ali Zardari.

Accountability Court Judge Muhammad Asghar Ali heard the case against former President Asif Ali Zardari and former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif. The NAB prosecutor while presenting the report of sending summons to Nawaz Sharif in the UK said that Nawaz Sharif is present in the UK to whom warrants have been sent through the Foreign Office.

Asif Zardari’s lawyer Farooq H Naik filed an application for exemption from attendance. Judge Asghar Ali said that there is a criminal case so Asif Zardari will have to appear. Nawaz Sharif’s non-bailable warrants could not be executed, he is not being part of the court deliberately.

The accountability court rejected former president Asif Ali Zardari’s plea for immunity, issued bailable arrest warrants for him and adjourned the hearing till August 17.
