Islamabad: A court in Pakistan has issued non-bailable arrest warrants for former prime minister Yousaf Raza Gilani and former federal minister Makhdoom Amin Faheem in connection with a seven-billion-rupee financial scam, reports said Thursday.

Gilani and Fahim, who are currently  on bail in 12 similar cases pertaining to corruption amounting to Rs 500 million, have been accused of  involvement in the multi-billion Trade Development Authority of Pakistan (TDAP) scandal.

The judge also ordered authorities to arrest the two PPP leaders by September 10 and present them before the court.

Dozens of cases have been filed against the duo and the order came after the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) presented a final chargesheet with 12 new cases against them.
