Nawaz and his daughter Maryam are scheduled to reach Lahore on Friday evening to surrender themselves to the authorities in the Avenfield case.
On July 6, in a verdict which will echo across the political landscape of Pakistan for decades, the accountability court hearing the Avenfield reference sentenced deposed prime minister Nawaz to 10-years imprisonment and daughter Maryam to seven years.
The former prime minister’s son-in-law, Safdar, was also sentenced to a year in prison. Nawaz was further fined eight million pound sterling and Maryam was slapped with a two million pound fine. The court also ordered their properties to be forfeited in favour of the federal government. Maryam’s sentence includes a year in prison due to her involvement in the Calibri font scandal.
