NAB Challenges bail of Capt (retd) Mohammad Safdar


The National Accountability Bureau on Friday challenged Capt (retd) Mohammed Safdar’s release on bail in the Islamabad High Court.

According to the Express News, NAB has argued in the petition that only the high courts can issue bails after arrest warrants of a person have been issued, adding that the accountability court should have arrested Capt (retd) Safdar.

The NAB further requested that deposed prime minister’s son-in-law be arrested and sent to Adiala jail.

The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) had arrested Captain (retd) Safdar on October 9 as soon as he landed at the Benazir Bhutto International Airport on his return from London.

Arrest warrants for Safdar were issued by an accountability court after he and other members of the family failed to appear before it.

The accountability court hearing a case against the former premier, his daughter Maryam Nawaz and his son-in-law Capt (retd) Safdar adjourned the case till November 7. During the hearing, Nawaz’s counsel had requested the court to adjourn the case and wait till the Islamabad High Court decides on combining the three reference cases against the deposed primer together.
