LONDON/ISLAMABAD: Maryam Nawaz, the daughter of the ousted prime minister, and her husband have decided to end their stay in London and may return to Pakistan next week to appear before an accountability court in connection with a reference related to the London properties owned by the Sharif family.
While no one from the ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz was willing to speak on record, sources close to the Sharif family in London said Maryam’s brothers — Hasan and Hussain — would remain in the British capital and wait for the outcome of the upcoming hearing of the accountability court, Islamabad, where their sister might appear on Oct 9 (Monday).
Maryam is currently in London and has been looking after her mother Kulsoom Nawaz, who has been receiving treatment for cancer.
On Oct 2, the accountability court, Islamabad, issued non-bailable arrest warrants for Hussain, Hassan and retired Capt Mohammad Safdar for failing to appear in court. The judge, however, did not issue non-bailable warrants for Maryam but repeated the bailable arrest warrants after the counsel for Nawaz Sharif assured the court that she and her spouse would join the proceedings on the next date of hearing set for Oct 9.
