Disgraced former Pakistan prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s flight has just touched the ground in Lahore. Sharif and his daughter Maryam are to be taken to Islamabad in a helicopter after their landing in Lahore. Sharif is facing a 10-year prison sentence on corruption charges. He is being accompanied by his daughter Maryam, who was sentenced to seven years in prison. Police have virtually put Lahore on lockdown as scores of Sharif's supporters clashed with police in the evening.
Sharif and Maryam are expected to be arrested immediately after their arrival from London where they were visiting Sharif's ailing wife when a Pakistani court convicted them of corruption. Sharif's son-in-law is currently 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. Sharif is expected to appeal his conviction and seek bail against the 10-year jail term.
