Islamabad: For his alleged involvement in Rs 7 billion corruption scandal, a Karachi-based anti-corruption court on Thursday issued a non-bailable arrest warrant against former Pakistan prime minister Yousuf Raza Gilani.
Gilani, along with another ex-minister Faheem were issued warrant after Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) reportedly found evidence of their involvement in the Trade Development Authority of Pakistan (TDAP) corruption scandal.
The FIA submitted a charge sheet, giving evidence to Judge Mohammad Azeem to approve the non-bailable warrants.
The court previously issued legal notices to both Gilani and Faheem but neither had responded.
Gilani and Fahim have been accused of involvement in the seven-billion-rupee freight subsidy financial scam in TDAP.
The key accused, Muhammad Firdous, turned approver against the former prime minister and the ex-minister.
The hearing of the case was adjourned to June 17.
