Ousted Pakistan prime minister Nawaz Shairif's daughter Maryam Nawaz, after appearing before the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) court on Monday, said that she was not afraid of getting arrested. On the previous hearing the court had issued non-bailable arrest warrants against them yet they skipped the hearing yesterday. The judge also ordered NAB authorities to release Capt Safdar.

Maryam Nawaz and her spouse, Captain Safdar appeared before the accountability court in Islamabad on Monday in references filed by NAB in the light of Supreme Court's judgment in Panama Papers.

However, Sharif and his two sons were absent as they are in London where 67-year-old Sharif's wife is battling throat cancer.

On Monday, the NAB declared Sharif's sons, Hussain and Hassan, proclaimed offenders for repeatedly failing to appear before it.

They have been charged in one of three corruption cases against Sharif.

According to legal experts, in such a situation the accountability court may separate the case of the present accused or deem those absent as absconders. The court also asked him to seek its permission before going overseas and rejected the NAB request to confiscate his passport.

Hassan and Hussain, who are facing corruption cases in Pakistan, are residing in London. Maryam Nawaz while speaking to media said, "My brothers live overseas and the laws of Pakistan do not apply to them", she said. "I am being penalized just because I am daughter of Nawaz Sharif", she said, adding that she and her husband would face the cases. Maryam was with him but she was not arrested.

"When they could not find any evidence, they disqualified him on the Iqama (work permit) issue", she contended.

She said that the next general elections would be held on time in 2018 and the government would complete its tenure. After the court proceedings, Maryam told reporters, "They have already punished my father by disqualifying him from office".
