Nawaz's son-in-law arrives in Rawalpindi to 'surrender'

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

Pakistan's former prime minister Nawaz Sharif's son-in-law Captain (retired) Muhammad Safdar Awan, convicted in the Avenfield case, appeared at a rally of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) in Rawalpindi on Sunday. Sharif's 44-year-old daughter and co-accused Maryam was given seven years for abetment, and one year for non-cooperation with the NAB - also to run concurrently.

Sources in the federal government said authorities are considering to arrange access of a NAB team to the airplane so that they could arrest Sharifs from within the plane.

Sources in the PML-N, however, said the party had planned to accord a historic welcome to their supreme leader in Islamabad, but later it decided that they should land in Lahore on Friday mainly for two reasons. The UK Government has consistently said it aims to crackdown on the laundering of corrupt funds through the UK, although recent media reports suggest that the authorities failed to properly assist Pakistani counterparts during this investigation.

They are likely to be arrested upon arrival at the Lahore airport.

In the meantime, he announced through a video message sent to the PML-N workers that he had chose to surrender outside the election office of a party candidate in front of Gordon College in Rawalpindi. He had done underground after the verdict. Political analysts say Nawaz and his daughter will try to win the sympathies that can play a role in the success in the elections. "People joining Shehbaz Sharif, convoy has become a rally towards Nankana Sahib", PML-N President's official handler tweeted on Monday. Persons put on the ECL are prohibited from leaving Pakistan.

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

The statement by Maryam Nawaz on July 7 came a day after a National Accountability Bureau (NAB) court handed Sharif a 10-year jail term for assets and properties such as upscale flats in London.
