The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has on Tuesday submitted a certified copy of the proclamation notice to the Islamabad High Court (IHC) which was served on former prime minister Nawaz Sharif through Royal Mail.
Director Europe at the Foreign Office filed a miscellaneous application along with certified documents in the Avenfield and Al-Azizia cases on Nawaz Sharif.
This copy will serve as evidence, enabling the court to declare the PML-N supremo a proclaimed offender in both cases for failing to appear before it despite being repeatedly summoned.
“The copy of aforesaid receipt is already available on record, however, an attested copy having become available is submitted soon upon its receipt through diplomatic bag,” the application reads.
It also pleads with the court to take it on record in the interest of justice.
On November 24, a Foreign Office official had placed on record a compliance report informing the judges that the PML-N supremo didn’t show up before the court deliberately.
An execution report of his warrants through ads in print as well as electronic media was also submitted to the bench.
