The suspension of the arrest warrants in the Al-Azizia, Flagship, and Avenfield cases was granted by an accountability court judge, Nasir Javed Rana, last week. Initially, the judge reserved the verdict in the case and then extended the suspension of the arrest warrants until March 14.

The warrants for the arrest of the two brothers were issued seven years ago after the court declared them absconders.

Their lawyer, Qazi Misbah, filed a plea seeking the suspension of the warrants, citing their plans to return to Pakistan on March 12. National Accountability Bureau (NAB) prosecutors, including Sardar Muzaffar, Usman Masood, and Sohail Arif, were present in court during the proceedings.

Misbah disclosed this development during the hearing of the Toshakhana reference against Nawaz, Pakistan People’s Party’s (PPP) Co-Chairman Asif Ali Zardari, and former Prime Minister Yusuf Raza Gilani. These politicians are accused of violating Toshakhana rules by keeping various vehicles.

Arif, a NAB prosecutor, emphasized the need for the accused to appear in court according to the law. He stated that the purpose of the warrants was to bring the accused before the court and insisted that both brothers should be given the opportunity to appear before the accountability court.

After both sides completed their arguments, the accountability court reserved its decision on the petitions.
