Nawaz Sharif will aboard the flight from London to Lahore on October 21 while he is due to appear before accountability court on October 26. The court will hear corruption references filed against him by National Accountability Bureau (NAB).
On Thursday, the NAB court indicted Nawaz Sharif on corruption charges spiralling from the Panama Papers leak in a case that could ultimately see the former leader jailed. The court also indicted his daughter Maryam and her husband in the case, which relates to the family s luxury London properties. Maryam, who attended the hearing in Islamabad, pleaded not guilty and blasted the court s decision afterwards.
Moreover, Nawaz Sharif - who is the current PML-N president - has other worries as media reports claim several party leaders are upset with his leadership. Today, Federal Minister for Inter-Provincial Coordination Riaz Hussain Pirzada suggested that Punjab CM Shehbaz should lead PML-N and Nawaz Sharif should step down in the light of corruption cases against him.
He was disqualified by Supreme Court in Panama Papers case.
