Pakistani laws do not applied on Hassan, Hussain: claims Maryam 

The daughter of Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, Maryam Nawaz (C), is escorted by security as she arrives to appear before an anti-corruption commission at the Federal Judicial Academy in Islamabad on July 5, 2017. Pakistan's Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and his children are accused of graft in an ongoing case which has captivated Pakistan and threatened to topple the prime minister after the Panama Papers leak last year linked the family to offshore businesses. The Supreme Court issued a split ruling calling for a joint investigation team of anti-corruption officials along with the powerful Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) and Military Intelligence to probe the claims and issue a report within 60 days. / AFP PHOTO / AAMIR QURESHI

Islamabad, Oct. 9 (TNS): Amid arrest warrants issued by accountability court, Maryam Nawaz on Monday says that her brothers live abroad and the laws of Pakistan do not apply to them.

On October 2, the accountability court had issued non-bailable warrants for the arrest of the former premier’s sons, Hassan and Hussain, and son-in-law Safdar. The court issued bailable warrants for Maryam.

On Monday, Maryam arrived at the court, later speaking to media persons, she said that despite all reservations regarding the revengeful accountability, Sharif family presented themselves before the court.

“Politicians should appear before the people because they are answerable to the people.” But those who have made a joke out of the Constitution and rule of justice and ousted their elected PM should also be held answerable, she added.

Former First-Daughter asked why her family was arrested on airport when they voluntarily appear before the courts?

“We are not going to be discouraged by these arrests, this will soon end,” she said. “I know that this case against me at NAB has been made up only because I am Nawaz Sharif’s daughter. But we are still appearing before the courts despite this revengeful accountability.”
