Nawaz Sharif, Maryam Nawaz leave for Heathrow Airport

LONDON – Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif and his daughter Maryam Nawaz will depart from Heathrow Airport for Lahore on Thursday.

Nawaz Sharif and Maryam Nawaz arrived in London before Eidul Fitr and will return to Pakistan on Friday. The return comes a week after the accountability court handed an 11-year sentence to Nawaz and eight years to Maryam in the Avenfield case. Nawaz was also fined eight million and Maryam two million pounds.

Maryam’s husband, Captain (retd) Safdar was sentenced to one year.

On the other hand, the National Accountability Bureau has arranged two helicopters. One helicopter will be at Lahore Airport, while the other would be in Islamabad.

A 16-member NAB team has been tasked to arrest the duo. The NAB has directed security personnel to remain alert tomorrow. NAB Chairman Justice (retd) Javed Iqbal has warned that strict action will be taken against the people obstructing the arrest of PML-N leaders.
