Maryam Nawaz announces date for return back to Pakistan

LONDON - Maryam Nawaz announced that she will return to Pakistan along with her father on Friday despite being sentenced eight-year prison in the Avenfield properties case.

Former first daughter Maryam Nawaz was speaking to media in London on Saturday, a day after the accountability court’s verdict, which imposed a 11-year punishment against her father, former prime minister Nawaz Sharif.

"Its written in the decision that Nawaz Sharif is not involved in corruption," she said. "My father has been acquitted from money laundering charges."

She said that her father faced accountability in General (retd) Pervez Musharraf's regime but nothing was proven against him.

The PML-N supremo's daughter said that the Avenfied decision given by an accountability court is solely based on assumptions.

"The United Kingdom authenticated the trust deed," she added.

The PML-N leader said that the authorities should use their red warrants to bring back dictators who violated the constitution of Pakistan.
