LONDON: Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif has refused to receive his arrest warrants from the Pakistan High Commission in London.
An official of the high commission went to serve the arrest warrants sent by the government on Mr Sharif at his London residence but no one received them, the sources said.
Later, the high commission sent him copies of the warrants through email, they said.
The Islamabad High Court (IHC) had directed the foreign secretary to ensure production of ex-PM before the court on September 22.
He was told to “cause the production of appellant (Mr Sharif) through High Commission of Pakistan in United Kingdom” on Sept 22.
Last week, the Islamabad High Court (IHC) Registrar Office had started implementing the orders and issued a notice to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs for taking steps to arrest former prime minister Nawaz Sharif.
