Nawaz Sharif, Maryam to be transported to Adiala jail via helicopters

Former premier Nawaz Sharif and his daughter Maryam Nawaz

"Goodbyes are hard, even for the grownups", she tweeted.

"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. Flights that were to arrive at Islamabad airport this morning have been diverted to Lahore airport. They would be kept at Adiala jail for 1 day and then would be transferred to Attock Fort. According to sources, the Cabinet Division has allocated two helicopters - reserved for the prime minister - to the NAB to shift Sharif and his daughter to jail from the airport.

Their swift departure prevented PML-N workers staging a hero's welcome on the streets of Lahore, where Sharif's brother, Shehbaz, led between 10,000 and 20,000 party supporters on a march in defiance off a citywide ban on public gatherings ordered by the caretaker government that took over in June, as Pakistan's constitution requires in the lead-in to an election. Sharif's son-in-law is now serving his one-year prison sentence on the same charge, which stems from the purchase of luxury apartments in Britain that the court said were bought with illegally gotten money.

The verdict came at a time when Nawaz Sharif and daughter Maryam Nawaz Sharif were in London to see Begum Kulsum Nawaz Sharif who has been undergoing treatment for cancer. I am aware that I have been sentenced to 10 years (in prison) and I will be taken to a jail cell straight away.

Sharif said the nation's powerful military - which removed him in a 1999 coup - has conspired to manipulate the vote against his Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz party in favour of his main political rival Imran Khan.

The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) team, awaiting the father-daughter duo at Allama Iqbal International Airport, arrested them after immigration process.

Urging the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) to take notice of the emerging situation, the PML-N president said, "By the time our workers are released polls will be over".

Sharif, has been one of the country's leading politicians for most of the past 30 years.

PML-N leaders say authorities have launched a crackdown against union council leaders, the street-level party workers who bring out people on the streets, detaining hundreds of workers over the last 36 hours.
