Nawaz Sharif, daughter leave for London

Islamabad, April 18: Former Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and his daughter Maryam left for London on Wednesday and vowed to return before the next accountability hearing. The former leader and his daughter are scheduled to return on April 22, reports Dawn news. However, in a tweet just before their departure, Maryam vowed to return before the next hearing if they were not granted an exemption from appearance by an accountability court where proceedings over the family’s London properties was underway. Kulsoom Nawaz had undergone a surgery for lymphoma (throat cancer). The Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) had declared the procedure successful, but of late her condition has deteriorated. Last week, the PML-N government had shown reluctance to place the names of Nawaz Sharif, his children — Maryam, Hassan, and Hussain — and his son-in-law retired Captain Safdar on the Exit Control List (ECL) on the request of the National Accountability Bureau (NAB), reports Dawn news.
