(Pak Destiny) Ousted prime minister Nawaz Sharif is returning to Pakistan against the advice of his younger brother Shahbaz Sharif.
Nawaz is arriving on Monday morning. He is all set to face corruption and money laundering cases against him in the accountability court.
Official sources told Pak Destiny Shahbaz had asked Nawaz not to come back and go for confrontation with the military and court establishment. However, Nawaz threw Shahbaz advice in dustbin. “Nawaz has total confrontation in his mind. Let’s get ready to see him in action in coming days.
Shahbaz wanted his brother to extend his stay in London till things settled back home. However Nawaz never takes advice from his younger brother.
Sharif had gone to London to see his ailing wife who underwent three throat cancer surgeries.
Sharif, 67, was disqualified by the Supreme Court on July 28 in the PanamaBSE -4.06 % Papers case. His wife Begum Kulsoom is contesting on Lahore’s NA-120 seat that fell vacant in the wake of his disqualification.
The news of Sharif’s return came amid rumours that he may not come back as he is facing corruption and money laundering cases.
The NAB has written to the State Bank of Pakistan (SBP) and commercial banks requesting them that since Mr Sharif and his children and son-in-law Safdar are facing the NAB references their bank accounts be frozen. The NAB has also written to the commissioner Islamabad, deputy commissioner Lahore, federal board of revenue, excise and tax department and the chairman security exchange commission of Pakistan regarding attaching (seizing) of the properties of the Sharif family.
