"Far away in Dubai, one baker celebrated" Nawaz Sharif verdict

Former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif will arrive to Allama Iqbal International Airport Lahore from Heathrow Airport London on July 13, 2018.

Sharif and Maryam will face arrest on arrival in Pakistan just before the election, in which his party is in a tight race with opposition figure Imran Khan's party. She said she will reach Lahore airport on Friday at 6:15 pm by Ittehad Airways' flight EY-243.

Safdar said he is here to court arrest among his supporters, Geo TV reported.

President Shehbaz Sharif was greeted by party workers on his way to Nankana Sahib where he is set to address public rally in connection with election campaign for upcoming polls. PML-N sources said that Nawaz Sharif and Maryam Nawaz want the airport of their return to become the biggest gathering so that they could address the voters before their arrest.

An accountability court on Friday sentenced Nawaz Sharif to 10 years in prison for corrupt practices linked to his family's purchase of upscale London flats.

Sharif's son-in-law Capt (retd.) M Safdar who has been given one-year jail term for not cooperating with NAB, and aiding and abetting Sharif and Maryam has been arrested and sent to Adiala Jail, Rawalpindi.

Naturally, Netizens took to social media to mark the occasion hilariously trolling the PML (N) leader and his daughter Maryam, who too was given seven years for abetment, and one year for non-cooperation with the NAB.

Sharif and his daughter, Maryam Safdar, are now in London, where the three-time former PM's wife is undergoing cancer treatment.

PML-N spokesperson Marriyum Auranzeb said a large number of party workers will gather in Lahore from all provinces of the country to give "historic welcome" to Sharif and Maryam. She has been on a ventilator since 14 June after suffering a cardiac arrest in London.
