Maryam Nawaz Sharif says goodbye to her kids ahead of her arrest

Sharif loyalists arrested as former PM returns to appeal conviction

She along with her father Nawaz Sharif will be arrested by NAB at UAE's Abu Dhabi Airport later this morning. "She looked around after opening her eyes".

Sharif's PML-N expects a groundswell of support as he returns from London, where his wife Kulsoom is critically ill and undergoing cancer treatment. Still not conscious and on the ventilator.

NAB has acquired two helicopters-one at Lahore's Allama Iqbal International Airport and the other at the New Islamabad International Airport to transport the two convicts.

Sharif and his daughter Maryam Nawaz were sentenced to prison in a corruption case on July 6 along with Maryam Nawaz's husband Captain Safdar.

Ousted Prime Minister of Pakistan, Nawaz Sharif (UNSEEN), appears with his daughter Maryam, at a news conference at a hotel in London, Britain July 11, 2018.

Besides, three convicts were awarded an additional one-year imprisonment, which will run concurrently for not cooperating with the National Accountability Bureau (NAB). "Prayers solicited", Maryam said on Twitter.

His remarks came days before the general elections in Pakistan and days after an anti-corruption court in Pakistan held Nawaz Sharif guild in the Avenfield corruption case and sentenced him 10 years in jail. Nawaz and Maryam will be flying from Abu Dhabi to Lahore on Etihad Airways flight EY243. Maryam had announced a rally on July 13 in Lahore, after which the two will surrender before the authorities.

He further said it is very painful for him to see Prime Minister Narendra Modi attending G20 summit and all we can do is watch.

Police and city administration have blocked all roads leading to the Lahore airport by placing containers to bar PML-N workers and leaders to reach from welcoming the duo. It is time to end the war that has been going on for 70 years. "Allah knows best about our return".

The interim government has arrested over 300 PML-N workers under the Maintenance of Public Order Ordinance ahead of the former PM's expected arrival.

Shehbaz Sharif, the president of PML-N and Mr Sharif's younger brother, will lead the homecoming rally of the Sharifs.

Pakistan's media regulator has ordered television channels to stop live telecast of briefings of political leaders containing "defamatory and derogatory content" ahead for former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif's return to the country on Friday, NDTV reported.

PML-N leaders say authorities have began a crackdown against union council leaders, the street-level party workers who bring out people on the streets.
