  • Ex-Pakistan PM's convicted son-in-law surrenders to police

The former ruling party, Pakistan Muslim League, capitalised on Safdar's rally to mobilize supporters ahead of the July 25 polls.

NAB had obtained arrest warrants against deposed prime minister Nawaz Sharif, his daughter Maryam Nawaz and son-in-law Safdar following an accountability court verdict that had sentenced Nawaz, Maryam and Safdar to 10, seven and one years in jail, respectively. The three-time PM was found guilty in the Avenfield corruption case - pertaining to the ownership of four flats in the posh Avenfield House in London, charges which were revealed in the Panama Papers scandal.

He had also been sentenced by the accountability court to one year in prison on charges of abetment in the Avenfield case.

The National Accountability Bureau has also made a decision to transfer Nawaz Sharif and Maryam Nawaz through helicopter to Adiala Jail.

President Shehbaz Sharif on Monday asked party workers to accord a warm welcome to former premier Nawaz Sharif and daughter Maryam on their return to Pakistan. Maryam was given a prison term for allegedly providing a forged trust deed, for which Safdar was a witness.

The law enforcement agencies have prepared a security plan as per which, Nawaz Sharif and Maryam Nawaz will be sent to Islamabad on another plane immediately after their arrival at Lahore airport. Safdar was arrested on Sunday.

The Sharif family say they legitimately bought the properties.

She has accused the military establishment and judiciary of targeting the Sharif family in a series of tweets since the verdict, Pakistan's first historic corruption conviction of a top politician.

Pakistan's military, which has ruled the nuclear-armed country for nearly half its history, denies involvement in civilian politics.

Sharif was ousted by the Supreme Court in July 2017 and barred from politics for being "dishonest" by failing to report a monthly income of 10,000 Emirati dirhams (US$2,723) from a company owned by his son. He denies drawing the monthly salary.
