Nawaz Sharif Accuses Pakistan Army Of'Attempting To Rig Elections

Junaid Safdar, son of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Maryam Nawaz together with his cousin Zakaria Sharif, were taken into custody by London Police after being involved in a "scuffle" with Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) workers on Thursday.

"My children have been wrongly convicted; I won't let them go to jail; however, if they are sent to prison, I will go with them", she said.

A Pakistani accountability court on Friday sentenced Sharif in absentia to 10 years in prison for corrupt practices linked to his family's purchase of upscale London flats.

He handed out seven-year imprisonment to the former premier's daughter Maryam Nawaz and a fine of £2 million. Officials have said a helicopter each had been positioned at airports in Islamabad and Lahore airports for the arrest. "This is the height of revenge", said Sharif.

Speaking on the bad state of Pakistan's economy, he said our economy is on the verge of decline, the stock exchange is going down, our reserves can support only one month's import now, our investors went back to London and Dubai wondering what would happen on 25 July in Pakistan.

A police official who asked not to be identified said more than 100 PML-N workers had been detained. He said the arrested PML-N activists have been detained for 30 days under public order.


He said that he was returning "despite seeing a prison cell in front of him" and was saddened that he was leaving his wife behind on ventilator.

The PML-N Supreme leader said the nation should remember the debacle Pakistan had to face due to conspiracies and East Pakistan was separated again the conspiracies can be felt in the air, now is the time to reveal the facts before the masses.

Sharif, who was disqualified by the Supreme Court in 2017 in the Panama Papers case, is now the supremo of the PML-N.

"WE ARE WINNING" Sharif's return comes at a time of dwindling fortunes for his party, which one year ago was considered a run-away favourite to retain power.

While Junaid, on the other hand, has come forward that the PTI workers spat at him and even proceeded to attack him. His brother Shehbaz became PML-N's president, but Sharif remains the power behind the throne.

Shehbaz further said that PML-N opponents are given full liberty to hold rallies while section 144 has been imposed in Lahore only to stop the PML-N workers from receiving their leader.
