  • Section 144 to be imposed at Lahore airport before Sharif's arrival

The National Accountability Bureau had written three letters to the ministry in February, June and July requesting that Sharif and Maryam be put on ECL.

The mob attempted to break the doors to the apartment of Sharif and his son, Hussain Nawaz.

A Pakistani anti-corruption court sentenced Prime Minister of Pakistan Nawaz Sharif to 10 years of imprisonment on Friday in one of the three cases of corruption related to the Panama Papers scandal.

Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Maryam Nawaz on Sunday remarked that she was proud that Captain (r) Safdar surrendered like a lion.

Meanwhile, the NAB has made a decision to request the caretaker government to provide a helicopter to it so that it can shift Sharif and Maryam to Islamabad after their arrival at the Lahore airport on July 14.

Attacking allies over trade and their willingness to pay their share of military costs has played well with his political base. He described the current situation as "disproportionate and not fair to the taxpayers of the United States".

The NAB has already declared that Mr Sharif and Maryam will be arrested upon their arrival at any airport of the country.

NAB officials have said they have obtained the necessary warrants in this regard and will arrest the duo when they land.

Fearing lack of response from the general public upon their arrival in Pakistan, the Sharifs have chose to land in Lahore, as the PML-N is eyeing support of state machineries in AJK and Gilgit-Baltistan to ensure public attendance, according to a report in The Express Tribune.

"Let me make it clear that the law enforcement agencies will arrest Nawaz and Maryam at the airport to implement the court's order", he said. The accountability court Islamabad on Friday last handed down 10 and 7 years rigorous imprisonment to Sharif and Maryam respectively in the Avenfield properties corruption case filed by the NAB.

PML-N spokesperson Marriyum Auranzeb said a large number of party workers will gather in Lahore from all provinces of the country to give "historic welcome" to Sharif and Maryam.
