Pakistan’s former Premier Nawaz Sharif returns to face NAB cases

Pakistan's former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif

By Muhammad Luqman
Putting an end to all sorts of rumours, Pakistan’s ousted Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif landed at Islamabad Airport on Monday after spending weeks in British capital, London, with his ailing wife Kalsoom Nawaz.
Mr. Sharif used Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi’s plane – PK-786 – to return to the country.
Opposition parties especially Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaaaf had predicted that Nawaz Sharif would never return to Pakistan to face the cases.
Pakistan’s anti-graft court has summoned Nawaz Sharif and his children and son-in-law in the references filed by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on September 26.
However, other family members including Hussain, Hassan, Maryam and her husband Captain Safdar did not return from London.
The decision of his return was made in a meeting with Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif who reached London the other day. The CM is expected to return to country sometime between September 28 to 30.
PML-N bigwigs, including Senator Mushahidullah Khan, NA Speaker Ayaz Sadiq, Talal Chaudhry, Pervaiz Rashid, and others welcomed the former premier at the airport, from where he headed to Punjab House in Islamabad.
