The former first family's son-in-law, retired Capt. Muhammad Safdar Awan, who was sentenced to a year in jail for abetting beside Sharif and Nawaz was arrested by NAB authorities Sunday evening from a rally meant to display PML-N's (Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz) power and showcase support of the masses in the garrison city of Rawalpindi.
Nawaz was sentenced 10-year imprisonment in Avenfield Reference Case on July 6 by NAB court while seven-year imprisonment was announce by the court for Maryam Nawaz.
On account of serious differences among the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz senior leaders in Punjab and Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa, the party leadership was not hopeful that party members and public would turn up in significant numbers at the Islamabad International Airport on Friday to welcome Sharif and his daughter, which is why the venue was changed to Lahore, it is learnt from well-placed party sources. Maryam was given 7 years imprisonment for abetment after she was found "instrumental in concealment of the properties of her father" and one year for non-cooperation with NAB.
Apple’s new MacBook Pros get a much-needed performance boost The company said in a press release that the 15-inch model is up to 70 percent faster, while the 13-inch model is twice as fast. Meanwhile the quad-core processor on the MacBook Pro 13-inch model is claimed to provide up to two times faster performance.
Pakistan's anti-corruption National Accountability Bureau (NAB) said in a statement that Muhammad Safdar handed himself in.
"After continued raids of National Accountability Bureau (NAB) at his houses in Abbotabad, Mansehra and Haripur, Captain Safdar chose to surrender before NAB", NAB said.
"Today's verdict shows that these Avenfield apartments were purchased using corruption money", prosecution lawyer Sardar Muzaffar Abbasi told reporters, citing the name of the apartment building in London. Maryam was given a prison term for allegedly providing a forged trust deed, for which Safdar was a witness.
Political observers believe that the decision for tendering arrest by Nawaz Sharif at Lahore Airport to NAB authorities would boost the morale of workers of his party PMLN and his political move give him a leverage in forthcoming general elections 2018 which are scheduled to be held on July 25, 2018.
