Sharif’s trial: The ticking clock for PML-N

 

An accountability court in Islamabad on Monday accepting a plea to declare the sons of former prime minister proclaimed offenders issued perpetual arrest warrants for Hassan Nawaz and Hussain Nawaz.

 

The court also separated their trial from other members of the Sharif family.NAB officials had submitted a plea to declare Hassan and Hussain Nawaz proclaimed offenders as they did not appear before the court, despite issuance of non-bailable arrest warrants. 

 

 

The court has declared Sharif’s sons Hassan and Hussain as Proclaimed Offenders; a dubious status they now share with Gen (rtd) Musharraf. And the line that being a British citizen places one of them beyond the reach of Pakistani law doesn’t really fly. Or, at least, it shouldn’t.

 

Pakistan and Britain enjoy no extradition treaty. Though Theresa May could personally intervene, despite Hassan being a citizen of the country that has long been known as the VIP outpost for former Pakistani heads of state wanting to escape corruption or treason charges.

 

 

Or, indeed, certain political party chiefs wanted for murder. It shouldn’t matter that Hassan is a British citizen. After all, Downing Street has been known to let its nationals languish in Pakistanis jails. Some of whom were left here with explicit instructions to be tortured.

 

The moment has come for Britain to step up. From affording Musharraf a safe-haven just when the civilian set-up was calling for David Cameron to have him extradited. It matters not that this was little more than a public relations stunt on the part of the then PPP government.

 

 For Britain has never come clean about why it offered hospitality to a man whose state of emergency saw Pakistan suspended from the Commonwealth until the time when democracy was once more restored.

 

Back at home, Imran Khan is yet again threatening street agitation in the capital. He accuses Nawaz of provoking the Army into coming out of the barracks. Yet why it would need to — when Khan has already announced his willingness to do its bidding for it — is anyone’s guess. Moreover Maj Gen Ghafoor, the DG ISPR, has ruled out any question of marital law.

 

Though he did add the caveat that the Army is busy going about its business as per the Constitution. Which may or may not mean that if Parliament deems it necessary to ask the men in khaki to come to the rescue then it would be duty bound to do so. Something that Imran Khan alluded to back in 2014.

 

Thus the clock is ticking. For Nawaz, his sons and the party in power. This collision course with the institutions of state has to stop. Regardless of just how much Captain Safdar’s military training helps him to sleep easy at night.
