Pak Authorities Arrest Nawaz Sharif's Son-In-Law Over Corruption Charges

Pak Authorities Arrest Nawaz Sharif's Son-In-Law Over Corruption Charges

The caretaker Punjab government has chose to impose Section 144 in the areas adjoining the Lahore airport to avoid any untoward incident during the arrival and likely arrest of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif. Persons put on the ECL are prohibited from leaving Pakistan.

Naturally, Netizens took to social media to mark the occasion hilariously trolling the PML (N) leader and his daughter Maryam, who too was given seven years for abetment, and one year for non-cooperation with the NAB.

Supreme Court gave the extension in Nawaz Sharif and Ishaq Dar's references after the Accountability Court's judge Mohammad Bashir requested for the extension in today's deadline.

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".

Mr Sharif has said that he is not afraid of going to jail. "On the announcement of the Sharif family that Nawaz and Maryam are arriving in Lahore on Friday at 6.15 p.m. we have written to the Punjab government to coordinate with NAB for their arrest at the airport", said an NAB official on Monday.

The father-daughter duo was sentenced on Friday to 11 and eight years in prison and slapped £8-million and £2-million fines, respectively, in relation to the Avenfield properties reference filed by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) last year.

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.

No arrests have been made as yet, they said, adding that legal action will be initiated over the destruction to private property.
