LONDON: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Maryam Nawaz has announced that she alongwith Nawaz Sharif will return to Pakistan on Friday to go to prison despite being sentenced to eight years in prison in the Avenfield properties case.
Will they return back to Pakistan is yet to be seen? <link#_>
The former first daughter was speaking to reporters in London, a day after the accountability court verdict.
"It's written in the verdict that Nawaz Sharif is not involved in corruption," she said. "My father has been acquitted from money laundering charges. I congratulate the workers of PMLN and the people of Pakistan that their leader Nawaz Sharif has received clean chit from the court confirming that he has never been involved in corruption, dishonesty, misuse of public money throughout his career in politics," said Maryam Nawaz .
Maryam said that her father also faced accountability during the Musharraf regime, but nothing was proven against him.
The former first daughter said that the Avenfied case verdict, given by an accountability court, was solely based on assumptions.
