NAB gets green signal to carry Nawaz, Maryam to Adiala via helicopter

‘Sharif, Maryam will be arrested on their arrival’ Sharif, daughter will be arrested at any Pakistan airport: Minister
Jeannette Daniel | 11 July, 2018, 00:11

Ousted Pakistan prime minister Nawaz Sharif's son-in-law was arrested on Sunday as he dramatically resurfaced in the garrison city of Rawalpindi to lead a rally of supporters, two days after being sentenced to jail in a corruption case related to the Panama Papers scandal.

The accountability court last week sentenced Mr. Sharif and Ms. Maryam to 10 years and seven years of rigorous imprisonment respectively in the Avenfield properties corruption case.

The interior ministry has placed their names on the Exit Control List, which bars individuals from leaving the country. Strict security measures were also in place outside the complex, Geo TV reported.

They are likely to be arrested upon arrival at the Lahore airport.

To another question, he said general elections will be held in time on 25th of this month, despite the recent verdict against Nawaz Sharif.

"I am coming back to liberate Pakistan from the shackles of fear created by a few judges and army generals", he had said after he was sentenced last Friday.

Meanwhile, the NAB has made a decision to request the caretaker government to provide a helicopter to it so that it can shift Sharif and Maryam to Islamabad after their arrival at the Lahore airport on July 14. The participats also reviewed security arrangements pertaining to Nawaz's arrival in Lahore.

"After continued raids of National Accountability Bureau (NAB) at his houses in Abbotabad, Mansehra and Haripur, Captain Safdar chose to surrender before NAB", the anti-graft watchdog said.

Maryam was given 7 years imprisonment for abetment after she was found "instrumental in concealment of the properties of her father" and one year for non-cooperation with NAB.
