ISLAMABAD: A court will next week charge Osama bin Laden’s widows and two of his grown-up daughters with illegal entry and residency, their lawyer told AFP on Monday.

“The court will frame charges against five family members on April 2” in connection with illegal entry and residency in Pakistan, Muhammad Aamir told AFP.

If the women are convicted, they are liable to be deported or imprisoned, Aamir added. Under Pakistani law, the maximum sentence is five years.

The court gave the women copies of the charges on Monday, the lawyer said.

Bin Laden’s two Saudi and one Yemeni widows, together with their children, have been living under the protection of the authorities in Pakistan since the al Qaeda chief was found and killed by US Navy SEALs on May 2, 2011.

Pakistan has always said it would look after bin Laden’s family until they could be repatriated to their homelands.
