Panama Papers: Nawaz Sharif's son-in-law Mohammad Safdar arrested on return to Pakistan

An accountability court hearing corruption cases against former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif's family granted bail to his daughter and son-in-law after they appeared in court on Monday.

Asked when her brothers Hassan and Hussain Nawaz will appear before the court, Maryam said they would take their decisions themselves.

Though the former prime minister had reservations over the entire process, the state minister said, they appeared before the courts to show respect for the Constitution and law.

Kulsoom Nawaz, the wife of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, will undergo her first chemotherapy session in a United Kingdom hospital, her daughter announced on Twitter on Tuesday.

The court rejected NAB's request to confiscate Mr Safdar's passport and to issue his judicial remand, however, the accused has been directed not to leave the country without court's permission.

Maryam Nawaz tweeted a picture of Kulsoom in the hospital, with Nawaz by her side, and thanked her followers for their "valuable prayers".

NAB Deputy Prosecutor General Chaudhry Khaliquz Zaman said that since Sharif's sons were declared proclaimed offenders, their properties in Pakistan would be attached.

After hearing arguments from the prosecution, the court accepted the bail of both Maryam and her husband. Maryam was with him but she was not arrested. Despite being ousted from his position, Nawaz (left) can still be re-elected thanks to the Pakistan parliament approving a bill allowing officials disqualified by courts to hold party offices.

The hearing was adjourned until October 13, when members of the Sharif family will be indicted.

She also criticised the judges for disqualifying her father in the Panama Papers case. Questions will be raised when the Panama case ends in "iqama" (foreign work permit).
