Interpol has rejected Pakistan’s appeal to issue a red warrant for the arrest and extradition of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s son, Hussain Nawaz, due to insufficient evidence against him. The Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) had contacted Interpol’s headquarters in France. Nawaz Sharif, his daughter Maryam Nawaz, Captain Safdar were also mentioned in the appeal document.
The Commission’s decision reads: “The Commission finds that the NCB of Pakistan has not provided sufficient facts that specifically link the wanted individual to the charges against him and it is not able to confirm that the data registered would be in compliance with Interpol’s rule and in view of the Article 83 of the PRD.”
It added: “For the reasons, the Commission decides that the data concerning the applicant are not compliant with Interpol’s rules applicable to the proceeding of personal data and that they shall be deleted from Interpol’s files.” It noted: “However, the applicant’s personal and specific role in the offence forming the base of the Red Notice request remains unclear even after further elements were provided by the NCB of Pakistan.”
