Nawaz, Maryam to challenge Avenfield verdict today

Three cases were filed against Sharif and his family in September a year ago following his disqualification by the Supreme Court on July 28, 2017 in the Panama Papers case.

Safdar's name was also placed on the black list, which means he would be barred from leaving the country.

Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Maryam Nawaz on Sunday remarked that she was proud that Captain (r) Safdar surrendered like a lion. He further added that Nawaz Sharif and Maryam Nawaz are returning Pakistan on July 13.

She said, "People fly out of the country to evade punishment but we are returning to face it."Nawaz Sharif has set a new benchmark by offering his arrest", she said emphasising that their sacrifices will not go in vain as they will benefit the future generations".

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

Pakistan opposition leader Imran Khan, a former cricket star who hopes to become the next prime minister, unveiled his party's manifesto Monday ahead of this month's parliamentary elections.

A NAB official said taking both the convicts to Islamabad from the Lahore airport by road may require "elaborate security arrangements".

Speaking to reporters in London, the three-time prime minister said that he and his daughter would land in Lahore and decide their future strategy once they arrive in Pakistan.

"Let me make it clear that the law enforcement agencies will arrest Nawaz and Maryam at the airport to implement the court's order", he said. Islamabad-based accountability court's judge Muhammad Bashir, who gave 10 years of rigorous imprisonment to 68-year-old Sharif in the Avenfield apartment case last week, was hearing the Al Azizia steel mills corruption case against him.
