Sharif, daughter to return home

Sharif's daughter, considered to be his political heir, was also sentenced to a seven-year term in connection with the same case. A clash broke out between Nawaz Sharif's Pakistan Muslim League (N) party members and agitated PTI protestors after the incident. 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.

The Islamabad Accountability Court sentenced 68-year-old Sharif to 10 years in jail in absentia for owning assets beyond income and one year for not cooperating with the anti-corruption authority, the National Accountability Bureau (NAB).

"Due process will be implied against the court's decision", Maryam had said, adding: "The institutions in the United Kingdom have already told the Pakistani institutions that no illegality was carried out".

Safdar, who was absconding after Avenfield verdict, arrived at a PML-N rally at Liaquat road on Sunday.

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

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