Section 144 to be imposed at Lahore airport before Sharif's arrival

Section 144 to be imposed at Lahore airport before Sharif's arrival

Sharif's 44-year-old daughter and co-accused Maryam was given seven years for abetment, and one year for non-cooperation with the NAB - also to run concurrently.

She said that consultation was underway against the decision and the lawyers were looking at the matter from legal angles when asked whether the father-daughter duo will return within the 10-day deadline set for appeal.

Sharif along with Maryam had gone to London last month to see his ailing wife Begum Kulsoom Nawaz.

The former first family's son-in-law, retired Capt. Muhammad Safdar Awan, who was sentenced to a year in jail for abetting beside Sharif and Nawaz was arrested by NAB authorities Sunday evening from a rally meant to display PML-N's (Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz) power and showcase support of the masses in the garrison city of Rawalpindi.

He will depart for Lahore from London on July 12, 2018 by Flight number EY18 (Heathrow Airport London) and will go to ABU DHABI.

NAB officials, in a statement on Friday, confirmed the former premier and his daughter would be arrested at the airport. The former ruling party, Pakistan Muslim League, capitalised on Safdar's rally to mobilize supporters ahead of the July 25 polls.

NAB received the arrest warrants for Nawaz, Maryam and Captain (retd) Safdar on Saturday. Sharif has already been disqualified for life by the Supreme Court in the Panama Papers scandal.

He has described the court proceedings against him as politically motivated and a judicial witch-hunt.

Mushahidullah further said that the caretaker federal government and NAB should allow Nawaz to address the people and urge them to disperse peacefully.

She said the nation was behind her father as they planned to return, whereas others chose to fly out of the country with excuses like "backache", in an obvious reference to Pervez Musharraf.
