NAB ready to take Nawaz, Maryam into custody at Lahore airport

TP 2 years ago

Islamabad (TP): The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has pulled up its socks to take former prime minister Nawaz Sharif and his daughter Maryam Nawaz at the Lahore airport as soon as they return to the country on July 13 and they will be transported to Islamabad to avoid any untoward situation that may be created by the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz supporters.

The father and the daughter were convicted by the trial court last Friday in the Avenfield reference for 10 and seven years respectively after they were found of possessing assets beyond known sources of income.

The trial court, however, said in the verdict that the prosecution failed to establish that the Sharifs purchased London flats through corruption money.

The decision to arrest the duo was taken at a meeting chaired by Interior Secretary Yousaf Naseem Khokhar here in Islamabad on Tuesday. The huddle was also attended by the Punjab chief secretary, police inspector general, NAB Lahore director general, the Federal Investigation Agency chief and Islamabad’s chief commissioner.

Sharif and Maryam will be produced before the accountability court in Islamabad the same day to obtain consent for their formal custody, the meeting decided but indicated that the duo could only be produced before the court if the environment remained calm in the federal capital.

Sources told The Punch that Sharif and Maryam would be shifted to Adiala Jail, where Capt (retd) Muhammad Safdar was currently locked up.

The sources said that the local administration could seek help from Rangers if the law and order situation spirals out of control.

Sharif and Maryam, who are presently in London to tend to ailing Kulsoom Nawaz, have announced to return to the country on July 13 even if they were put behind the bars.
