Islamabad: The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has made arrangements to transport former Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and his daughter Maryam to the Adiala jail upon their arrival at the Allama Iqbal International Airport in Lahore on Friday.

According to Geo News, the Cabinet Division allocated two helicopters to the NAB for Friday, the day on which the father-daughter duo is slated to be arrested upon their landing at the Lahore Airport. Nawaz and Maryam will then be directly transported to the Adiala jail in Rawalpindi.

 

As many as 22 NAB officials and around 100 elite commandos will be presented at the airport to oversee the transport, as reported by Dunya TV.

Meanwhile, the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) has made preparations of their own to welcome the former premier and his daughter.

According to Geo News, the party has organised a rally which will be led by PML-N president Shehbaz Sharif and will begin from the Muslim Masjid in Lohari Gate after Friday prayers. Other senior party leaders, including Hamza Shehbaz, will also join the rally.

The party has also arranged a bulletproof vehicle to transport senior leaders to the Lahore airport.

Earlier, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan had criticised the PML-N's move to welcome Sharif and his daughter.

"A man does money laundering of Rs 300 billion and becomes innocent, and wants himself to be welcomed with claps," Khan had said.

On July 6, Nawaz was sentenced to 10 years of imprisonment and a fine of eight million pounds was slapped on him in the Avenfield reference case, while Maryam was sentenced to seven years of jail and fined two million pounds by the accountability court.

Nawaz's son-in-law Captain (retired) Muhammad Safdar was sentenced to one year of imprisonment. He was arrested by the NAB after he appeared at a PML-N rally in Rawalpindi.

He was presented in an accountability court in Islamabad by the NAB before being shifted to Adiala Jail.
