Thanks for nothing
an interview with Reuters in London, August 23, 2007.
The headlines a couple days ago read like this:
Pakistani supreme court approves exiled former PM's return
So far, so good. No wonder he's all smiles. He will be allowed to return home.
Pakistan's Supreme Court on Thursday [August 23, 2007] said in a verdict that the exiled former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif could return to the country and to take part in the forthcoming parliamentary elections.
Ah, but the other shoe hadn't dropped yet. Today the headline is:
Pakistani court to issue arrest warrants against exiled former PM after his return
Pakistan's accountability court on Saturday ordered that arrest warrants against exiled former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and his family members should be issued after their return, a local TV channel Geo reported.
Khalid Mehmood, the judge of the Accountability Court-IV in Rawalpindi, a city near the capital Islamabad, declined to summon or issue immediate arrest warrants against Sharif and adjourned the hearing of three corruption references against Sharif and some of his family members till Sept. 7.
