Returning to Pakistan 'whether I'm taken to prison or gallows': Nawaz Sharif

Imran Khan

The order, seen as an effort to ensure that Nawaz Sharif wasn't able to turn public opinion in his favour ahead of the July 25 general election, said "malicious and indecent content" was being aired live by television channels and sought only telecast of edited footage.

Nawaz Sharif's brother Shahbaz Sharif, who is the president of the Pakistan Muslim League (Nawaz), is expected to lead a rally to Lahore's Allama Iqbal International Airport to receive the two, Dawn reported.

The Sharif family is now facing two more corruption cases in the accountability court - Al-Azizia Steel Mills and Flagship Investments - in which they are accused of money laundering, tax evasion and hiding offshore assets.

Lamenting that the party is not being allowed to campaign and is "being pushed against the wall", Shehbaz said, "No one complain to me later if we are not given a level playing field".

Speaking to media persons outside London's Harley Street Clinic, Hussain said that his mother opened her eyes for a few seconds only to close them again; however, she is in a better state now and doctors have adjusted the settings on the ventilator.

"Referring to the Avenfield reference verdict against him he stated, "'it is written in the verdict that Nawaz has not done any corruption and no proof of corruption found against him".

Their return could shake up an election race marred by claims Pakistan's powerful military was skewing the contest in favour of ex-cricket hero Imran Khan.

On Wednesday, Maryam said that the nation would soon make its decision to change the fate of the country.

"WE ARE WINNING" Sharif's return comes at a time of dwindling fortunes for his party, which one year ago was considered a run-away favourite to retain power.

Sharif said that former dictator Gen. Pervez Musharraf, who abrogated the constitution of Pakistan twice, remains at large and no one has the power to bring him back.

He was elected prime minister in 1990-93.

He said the police are taking only anti-social elements into custody ahead of Sharif's arrival.

Sharif, who was disqualified by the Supreme Court in 2017 in the Panama Papers case, is now the supremo of the PML-N.

He handed out seven-year imprisonment to the former premier's daughter Maryam Nawaz and a fine of £2 million. Maryam said that Pakistan was standing at an important juncture and "these are defining times".
