It was unnecessary by NAB to arrest Captain (retired) Safdar

ISLAMABAD: State Interior Minister Talal Chaudhry said  it was unnecessary by NAB to arrest a person who returned to appear before the accountability court, but as it was a legal matter we didn’t raise our objection

Speaking to journalists, he said that the government wanted to show the difference between those who follow law, and those who only speak about it.

“There are absconders who speak on the rule of law but never appear before court, and there is also one who made excuses and ran away from court,” he said.

Chaudhry said that there are people who are very worried with the return of Maryam Nawaz Sharif.

“We have told it before, and we are telling them today as well, we will keep giving those surprises,” the state minister said. “Even after having serious reservations over JIT and accountability process we are appearing before it.”
