Pakistan's National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on Sunday arrested former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif's son-in-law Mohammed Safdar, from Bhabra Bazaar in Rawalpindi. The interior ministry has already placed their names on the Exit Control List.

Rachel Davies Teka, Head of Advocacy at Transparency International UK, said, "We are calling on the UK authorities to investigate the London-based assets identified in this conviction and ensure that Sharif and his family are no longer able to enjoy any luxury homes that are found to have been bought with the proceeds of corruption".

While speaking to media in London earlier on Saturday, Maryam said she and her father would return to Pakistan on Friday - before the 10-day deadline for an appeal against the decision ends. Three cases were filed against Sharif and his family in September previous year following his disqualification by the Supreme Court on July 28, 2017 in the Panama Papers case.

On Friday, July 6th, Supreme Court sentenced Nawaz Sharif for 10 years, Maryam Nawaz for 7 and Captain Sardar for 1 year respectively.
