Sharif, his daughter will be arrested on their arrival

Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif and daughter Maryam are set to challenge the accountability court's verdict against them in the Islamabad High Court today.

Safdar's name was also placed on the black list, which means he would be barred from leaving the country.

Naturally, Netizens took to social media to mark the occasion hilariously trolling the PML (N) leader and his daughter Maryam, who too was given seven years for abetment, and one year for non-cooperation with the NAB.

Talking to a private news channel, Hamza ruled out controversy in the family, saying his relationship with Nawaz Sharif is based on love and respect.

While they will not face any difficulty in coming to Pakistan, they are expected to be arrested during the immigration process at the airport as per standard procedure for all those placed on ECL.

The NAB has already declared that Mr Sharif and Maryam will be arrested upon their arrival at any airport of the country.

On Friday, the accountability court sentenced Sharif to 10 years in jail for owning assets beyond income and one year for not cooperating with the anti-corruption authority, the National Accountability Bureau (NAB).

A NAB official said taking both the convicts to Islamabad from the Lahore airport by road may require "elaborate security arrangements".

"Let me make it clear that the law enforcement agencies will arrest Nawaz and Maryam at the airport to implement the court's order", he said.

Fearing lack of response from the general public upon their arrival in Pakistan, the Sharifs have chose to land in Lahore, as the PML-N is eyeing support of state machineries in AJK and Gilgit-Baltistan to ensure public attendance, according to a report in The Express Tribune.

"Our workers can not be stopped by any hurdle", she said.
