Former Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and his daughter Maryam Nawaz, who were convicted by a Pakistani court in the Avenfield Apartments case, landed at UAE's Abu Dhabi International Airport on Friday.
Earlier in April, Pakistan's Supreme Court disqualified Nawaz from contesting elections for the rest of his life because of his corruption cases as revealed in the Panama Papers.
A Pakistani accountability court on Friday sentenced Sharif in absentia to 10 years in prison for corrupt practices linked to his family's purchase of upscale London flats.
Quoting Dunya News, Newsweek Pakistan reported that Nawaz Sharif and his daughter Maryam Nawaz will be held in Adiala Jail for one day and then be imprisoned in Attock Jail.
Both quickly vowed to return to appeal and though neither can stand in the July 25 general election, the PML-N hopes their appearance can galvanise a campaign which has seen them lose ground to the party of cricketer-turned politician Imran Khan.
Kulsoom Nawaz, whose health has been described as "highly critical" by doctors, has been undergoing treatment at the Harley Street Clinic in London. Nawaz and Maryam will be flying from Abu Dhabi to Lahore on Etihad Airways flight EY243.

Some have even called it the "ugliest face of Pakistani establishment" as the administration in the country said it would arrest Mr Sharif and his daughter Maryam mid-air, as soon as their plane enters Pakistani territory.

It is expected that Nawaz Sharif and Maryam Nawaz will be arrested upon their arrival.
Sharif's return comes at a time of dwindling fortunes for his party, which one year ago was considered a run-away favourite to retain power. His brother Shehbaz became PML-N's president, but Sharif remains the power behind the throne. Many PML-N lawmakers have also defected to Khan's party.
Furthermore, Imran also advised his own party workers to show patience upon Nawaz's return to the country.
