Safdar's name was also placed on the black list, which means he would be barred from leaving the country.
"No matter how much you try to cover it, people know the reality", Maryam said while talking to reporters in London.
Far away in Dubai, one baker celebrated the occasion with a Nawaz Sharif behind the bar cake! Islamabad-based accountability court's judge Muhammad Bashir, who gave 10 years of rigorous imprisonment to 68-year-old Sharif in the Avenfield apartment case last week, was hearing the Al Azizia steel mills corruption case against him.
Maryam confirmed to the media in London on Sunday that her father and she would land in Lahore on July 13.
While they will not face any difficulty in coming to Pakistan, they are expected to be arrested during the immigration process at the airport as per standard procedure for all those placed on ECL. "On the announcement of the Sharif family that Nawaz and Maryam are arriving in Lahore on Friday at 6.15 p.m. we have written to the Punjab government to coordinate with NAB for their arrest at the airport", said an NAB official on Monday.
"Since the road option may be hard for the authorities concerned with regard to provide security cover, a helicopter should be provided to the NAB to avoid problems in the arrest and shifting them (Nawaz and Maryam) to Adiala jail in Rawalpindi after producing them before the accountability court", the official said. The former prime minister's son-in-law, Safdar has also been sentenced to a year in prison.
"This is not the 1970s or 80s; the more you try to cover up [the facts] the more you will be exposed", the PML-N leader added.
