Karachi: Sindh High Court (SHC) on Tuesday sought replies from both parties before October 16 over petition seeking probe into the money given to ex-prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s daughter Maryam Nawaz by former US president Barack Obama’s wife Michelle Obama.

During the hearing, the plaintiff told the court that Michelle Obama gave $70 million to Maryam for the education of children in Pakistan but no one knows where that amount was used. He also alleged that Maryam Nawaz is misusing her authorities.

The claimant further requested the court to order National Accountability Bureau (NAB) to investigate the matter so that the reality can be surfaced.

Deputy Attorney General said that we are waiting for replies from federal departments over which the court adjourned the proceeding till October 16.

On the other hand, accountability court has issued bailable arrest warrants for Maryam Nawaz, her brothers Hassan and Hussain Nawaz and husband Captain Safdar over failing to appear in NAB references. The accused has also been directed to submit surety bonds of Rs1 million each.
