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.”
