LONDON: PML-N Vice President Maryam Nawaz met her father, Nawaz at the Avenfield apartments in London after three years, Geo News reported on Friday.

Maryam received a rousing welcome from the party workers outside the Avenfield apartments. She thanked the party activists for the welcome. However, she could not talk to the media owing to the rush and stepped inside the building.

According to sources, Maryam reached the Avenfield House around 11:30pm (PST).

Earlier, when she arrived at the airport, she was received by her son, Junaid Safdar, daughter-in-law Aisha, and other members of the Sharif family.

The PML-N vice president travelled to the UK after receiving her passport back from the Lahore High Court earlier this week after the court took her travel document on an application submitted by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) in the Chaudhry Sugar Mills Limited case.

The passport was "confiscated" by LHC for more than three years in a case that Maryam termed "was never filed" by NAB.

While leaving for the UK, Maryam said she was excited to meet her father.

Before leaving, the PML-N leader offered fateha at the graves of her grandparents and mother.

According to sources in the Sharif family, Maryam will be staying in London for a month, after which she is expected to return to Pakistan along with her father.

The last time the PML-N leader was in London was when her mother Begum Kulsoom Nawaz was hospitalised.
