Nawaz Sharif to be arrested at airport


Cnews: Former Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and daughter Maryam will be arrested on Friday after they were found guilty in the Avenfield reference case on July 6.

Both Sharif and Maryam have been in London but have said that they will cooperate with Pakistani law enforcement agencies even though they also say they are innocent.

Ahead of PML-N leader's arrival, the authorities in Pakistan launched a massive crackdown on his supporters who have planned to give a rousing welcome to their leader and stage a demonstration outside the Lahore airport.

Although he has made several trips to Pakistan in the last months - primarily for case hearings, Sharif has mainly been in London to be by his ailing mother Kulsoom Nawaz who is in a hospital here.

Both Sharif and his daughter are expected to land in Lahore at 1815hrs (1845hrs IST) and will be arrested immediately.

Sharif faced corruption charges and was forced to resign as Prime Minister by Pakistan's Supreme Court after his name and family's name appeared in the Panama case. As per Pakistan's Geo News, Sharif was convicted for owning luxurious Avenfield properties in London's Park Lane. These properties will now be taken over by the appropriate authorities.
