Nawaz Sharif arrest warrant issued while Zardari summoned on June 11 as Accountability Court heard Toshakhana reference.
The Islamabad Accountability court on Friday issued warrant for arrest of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif.
It also directed ex-president Asif Ali Zardari to appear on June 11 in Toshakhana reference.
Meanwhile, former prime minister Yousaf Raza Gillani appeared before the court.
Nawaz Sharif is currently staying in London for medical treatment while Asif Zardari also didn’t appear amid speculation he was also ailing.
National Accountability Bureau (NAB) prosecutor requested the court to issue warrants for arrest of Nawaz Sharif, Asif Ali Zardari, Yousaf Raza Gillani and Omni Group Director Abdul Ghani Majeed.
Previously, NAB prosecutor said that Asif Ali Zardari and Nawaz Sharif illegally got cars from Yousaf Raza Gillani.
As per charges, Zardari had paid only 15 percent of the actual price of the cars through use of his fake accounts.
The NAB informed that Libya and United Arab Emirates (UAE) also gifted him cars when he was serving as president.
According to charges, Asif Zardari used these cars for his personal work instead of submitting them to Toshakhana.
The NAB prosecutor further said Nawaz Sharif got car without any application in 2008 although he was not holding any public office.
