Nawaz to return to Lahore today

ISLAMABAD: Rumors of Nawaz Sharif’s escape to a foreign country through another National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO) were all but quashed after the former prime minister announced his return to Pakistan for Tuesday (today).

Former Prime Minister and the ruling party Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz’s (PML-N) president had decided to return to Pakistan.

According to sources, Nawaz Sharif would return to Pakistan at 10:00 PST via Saudi Airline flight.

The PML-N president will appear before the accountability court on January 3.

The former prime minister was in Saudi Arabia to hold meetings with the royal family on what his party described as “matters of national interest.”
