Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif and Finance Minister Ishaq Dar will return to Pakistan from London on Monday morning, PML-N Senator Mushahidullah Khan confirmed on Sunday.
Nawaz had travelled to London in August to see his wife, Kulsoom Nawaz, who has been undergoing treatment for cancer.
Speaking to GeoNews, Senator Mushahidullah dismissed the accountability court proceedings that were initiated against Nawaz and his family as “minor matters”.
He added that he was unaware of whether the former premier will appear before the accountability court on Tuesday.
However, Dar’s counsel, Amjad Pervaiz, informed Dawn that the finance minister will appear before the court on Monday.
Authorities have already been directed to produce Dar before an accountability court on September 25. Accountability judge Mohammad Bashir has also warned that non-bailable arrest warrants would be issued if Dar failed to appear before the court.
