Ousted prime minister Nawaz Sharif and Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) leader Maryam Nawaz have left for London from Lahore airport and are expected to return back after Eid-ul-Fitr.

According to Waqt News, the PML-N supremo and his daughter will reach London via Doha.

They will spend Eid-ul-Fitr with Nawaz's ailing wife, Kulsoom Nawaz, and return next week.

While speaking to the media, Maryam confirmed that she and her father will return next week, adding that she is quite eager to meet her mother.

“I request the nation to pray for my mother’s good health,” she added. 

On June 7, Nawaz Sharif and his daughter Maryam had sought five-day exemption from appearance before accountability in the three references against the Sharif family.

Former prime minister Nawaz and his family members are facing three corruption references in the accountability court — Avenfield Properties, Al-Azizia Steel Mills and Flagship Investments — in which they are accused of money laundering, tax evasion and hiding offshore assets.

Nawaz and Maryam filed petitions seeking exemption from June 11 to June 15. The petition stated that both of them want to travel to London to meet the ailing wife of Nawaz, Begum Kulsoom Nawaz. The new medical report of Kulsoom Nawaz was also attached with the petition. 

On Sunday, Chief Justice of Pakistan Justice Mian Saqib Nisar allowed the former premier along with his daughter to visit his ailing wife Begum Kulsoom Nawaz in London.
