on

RAWALPINDI: Following a medical checkup at Adiala Jail, Avenfield Convict Nawaz Sharif was lodged in the Cell No. 11  while Maryam Safdar too was given B-lass in the Women’s jail.

Accountability court will be hearing the (yet-to-be-decided) cases inside the Jail.

Pieces published earlier:

i) The Avenfield convicts Nawaz Sharif and Maryam Safdar have been arrested by a three-member team of NAB officials here at the airport today around 9.15PM.  Their passports were confiscated by the authorities and they were transferred to a chartered plane for onward journey to Islamabad airport where they reached in 40 minutes.  From new Islamabad Airport, the father and daughter duo was taken to Adiala Jail in different squads. 

Meanwhile, hundreds of PML-N workers (who converged at Lahori Gate and Allama Iqbal International Airport) were arrested u/s 3 of Maintenance of Public Order Ordinance 1960 and Elections Act 2017. However, no heavyweight has been taken into custody. Avenfield corruption case convicts Nawaz Sharif and his daughter Maryam Safdar returned to Pakistan in order to file an appeal against the conviction, that was not possible from abroad. 

ii) Avenfield convicts Nawaz Sharif and Maryam Safdar reached Abu Dhabi today from London. They were initially expected to reach Lahore at 6.15PM onboard Etihad Airways’ flight No. EY243,  but due to a delay in the flight schedule they reach Lahore airport at 7.45PM.Savants at the helm of affairs insinuated that the government of Pakistan would attempt to arrest the duo at Abu Dhabi, but it seems they failed to do so. The conspiracy theorists are insinuating that the 90-minute-delay in the flight schedule is meant to buy time in order to persuade the authorities apropos the arrest of the convicts.  Presently, the establishment’s plan is to transport the two convicts by means of helicopters from Lahore to Rawalpindi’s Adhiala Jail.

In order to contain the agitation internet and mobile services in Lahore have been suspended.  PML-N, despite the arrests of hundreds of its leaders and workers, is all set to manifest street power. Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) President Shehbaz Sharif on Thursday said that Nawaz Sharif would be received at Lahore Airport on his arrival from London on Friday. Addressing a news conference at the PML-N Model Town Secretariat he said he would lead a rally from the Muslim Masjid, Lohari, to the Lahore airport to receive Nawaz Sharif. He condemned the alleged arrest of the party leaders and workers. PML-N’s leaders including Marriyum Aurangzeb, Ayyaz Sadiq, Khawaja Saad Rafiq, Sayed Mushahid Hussain, Pervaiz Malik, Hamza Shehbaz were present on the occasion. Shehbaz said he already had announced that the rally would remain completely peaceful and party workers would not damage any property.

“We are peaceful people and believe in the supremacy of democracy,” Shehbaz added. He claimed the accountability court could not prove corruption against the PML-N ‘Quaid’ and thus described Nawaz as ‘Sadiq and Ameen.’ He claimed that the PML-N was being targeted and added the party leaders and workers were not afraid of jails and would receive Nawaz Sharif and his daughter Maryam Nawaz on Friday (July 13). Shehbaz Sharif claimed the PML-N had served the masses, and added it ended load-shedding, built China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), restored peace in Karachi and set up mega public welfare projects. Answering a question, Shehbaz said they would go to elections despite any high-handedness by the district administration. “Free and fair elections are need of the hour and all parties must be allowed to campaign freely,” he suggested.

COAS confirms death sentence to 15 hardcore terrorists

MEXICO: The Sultan of the southern Malaysian state of Johor has commuted the death sentences of three Mexican brothers who were set to be hanged for drug trafficking crimes, Mexico said.
After years of lobbying by Mexican diplomats, Sultan Ibrahim Sultan Iskandar of Johor – one of Malaysia’s most powerful and wealthiest state rulers – commuted the men’s death sentences to life in prison, Mexico’s foreign ministry said Thursday.
“This was the result of a long process and intense dialogue with Malaysian federal authorities,” it said in a statement.
The brothers — Simon, Luis Alfonso, and Jose Regino Gonzalez Villarreal – were arrested in a raid on a methamphetamine lab in Johor in March 2008.
The brothers, who hail from the Mexican state of Sinaloa — home to jailed drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman’s Sinaloa cartel — insisted they were innocent, saying they had been hired to clean the building and were unaware what was being made inside.
But a Malaysian court sentenced them to hang to death in May 2012. The conviction was upheld on appeal the following year.
Mexico, which does not use capital punishment, neither accepted nor rejected the court’s guilty verdict, but pushed for the death sentence to be commuted.
