A Pakistan court on Monday issued bailable arrest warrants against former Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi for skipping proceedings in a case seeking action against him for disclosing the minutes of a high-profile security meeting to his party leader Nawaz Sharif.

The petition also seeks action against Sharif under treason charges for claiming that those involved in the deadly 2008 Mumbai terror attack belonged to Pakistan.

The bench was annoyed when no one appeared before the court on behalf of the three respondents — Sharif, Abbasi and the reporter.
