Former premier Nawaz Sharif and his daughter Maryam Nawaz will be arrested upon arrival at Lahore's Allama Iqbal International Airport and handed over to National Accountability Bureau (NAB) officials, a well-placed source told DawnNewsTV on Tuesday. Persons put on the ECL are prohibited from leaving Pakistan.

He said NAB wouldn't allow Sharif to lead a rally.

Both Nawaz Sharif and his daughter are now in London to look after Mr Sharif's wife, Begum Kulsoom Nawaz, who is suffering from throat cancer and has been on ventilator since June 14 after a cardiac arrest. Strict security measures were also in place outside the complex, Geo TV reported.

Maryam further said that not only "we aren't deterred, these circumstances have further strengthened our resolve". "I am not afraid of anyone", Nawaz said in an interview with a local media outlet. The National Accountability Bureau's (NAB) investigation team have already arrested Nawaz's son-in-law Mohammed Safdar from Rawalpindi. "On the announcement of the Sharif family that Nawaz and Maryam are arriving in Lahore on Friday at 6.15 p.m., we have written to the Punjab government to coordinate with NAB for their arrest at the airport", said an NAB official on Monday.

Trump heads to Europe, says Putin ‘easiest’ of his meetings
Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson and Brexit Secretary David Davis resigned within hours of each other in protest of her plan. After that comes a visit to Finland and another high-profile summit on Monday-with Russian President Vladimir Putin .

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

Nawaz s daughter Maryam, seen as his chosen political heir, was sentenced to seven years in prison and her husband Muhammad Safdar was given a one-year jail term in a ruling many see as a blow to the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) party before the July 25 election.

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