FIA requests Interpol to issue read warrant against Hassan, Hussain Nawaz

F.P. Report

ISLAMABAD: The Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) has requested Interpol to issue read warrant against Hassan and Hussain.

FIA has sent an application to Interpol in this regard and demanded to issue a red warrant in this regard.

Both the brothers were accused in a corruption ruling that sentenced their father, deposed prime minister Nawaz Sharif, to 11 years in prison and they were declared as proclaimed offenders.

Nawaz Sharif was on Friday sentenced in absentia to 11 years in prison over a corruption ruling in the Avenfield flats of London.

Nawaz’s daughter Maryam, seen as his chosen political heir, was sentenced to eight years in prison and her husband Muhammad Safdar was given a one-year jail term in a ruling many see as a blow to the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) party before the July 25 election.

The sentence, which also carries a fine of 8 million pounds, or $10.6 million, came almost a year after Supreme Court removed Nawaz Sharif from office and less than five months after the court barred him from holding office for life.
