Shehbaz urges party workers to give ‘warm welcome’ to Nawaz, Maryam upon return


NANKANA SAHIB: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) President Shehbaz Sharif on Monday asked party workers to accord a warm welcome to former premier Nawaz Sharif and daughter Maryam on their return to Pakistan.

Addressing workers while on his way to Nankana Sahib, Shehbaz said that both are returning from London on July 13 and urged workers to gather at the airport to receive them.

“Nawaz made the country an atomic power,” he said, adding that PML-N’s victory will defeat the verdict against Nawaz.

Nawaz Sharif on Friday was sentenced to 10 years in prison and slapped a £8 million fine (Rs1.3 billion) in the Avenfield properties reference while Maryam was sentenced to seven years with a £2 million fine (Rs335 million).
