Pakistan court seeks help from newspapers to arrest former PM Nawaz Sharif
A Pakistan court has issued orders for the printing of advertisements in newspapers, calling for the arrest of former President Nawaz Sharif, who is currently in London.
Sharif was summoned by the Pakistan government for resuming his trials on numerous corruption cases. The Islamabad High Court (IHC) was allegedly annoyed by the attitude of his agents who disregarded the court's arrest warrant which was sent to London.
Following Sharif's failure to respond to the court's arrest warrant, the IHC ordered for advertisements to be put up in various newspapers, especially in leading journals such as the Dawn and Jang.
It was reported that an agent of Sharif had accepted the arrest warrant earlier, but he later refused to obey the court's order.
