ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court (SC) on Monday suspended the Peshawar High Court (PHC) verdict to inform Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Amir Muqam ten days before his arrest. The court suspended the PHC verdict on the assurance of the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) for non-issuance of arrest warrant. A three-member bench of the apex court headed by Justice Umar Ata Bandial and comprising Justice Faisal Arab and Justice Qazi Muhammad Amin Ahmed, heard the case regarding issuance of arrest warrant of Amir Muqam in assets beyond means case. During the course of proceedings, the NAB prosecutor said the bureau did not intend to arrest Amir Muqam in assets case.
