Pakistan opposition leader Imran Khan, a former cricket star who hopes to become the next prime minister, unveiled his party's manifesto Monday ahead of this month's parliamentary elections.

The same court that sentenced Sharif also sentenced his daughter, Maryam Nawaz, to seven years in absentia in a case stemming from documents leaked from a Panama law firm.

Awan, traveling with his entourage of supporters and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz leaders, told the media: "I am surrendering myself in order to set a foundation for democracy", adding that his arrest would be a pivotal point for the nation to decide "how the country will be run". Sharif's daughter was also sentenced to jail for eight years.

Last week, a National Accountability Bureau (NAB) court handed Sharif a 10-year jail term for assets and properties such as upscale flats in London.

Soon after, the Metropolitan Police reached the site of the protest near Avenfield House, a luxury housing scheme and started a search.

Nawaz and Maryam are now in London but have vowed to return to Pakistan on July 13.

The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has said that Captain (retd) Safdar is likely to be arrested on Sunday (today).

After the verdict on Friday, Safdar said "justice has been massacred" and railed against the judiciary. However, he asked the apex for the extension in references against former PM Nawaz Sharif and his family.

PML-N sources said that Nawaz might request the NAB team to allow him to address the people directly once so he could appeal them to remain peaceful.

She has accused the military establishment and judiciary of targeting the Sharif family in a series of tweets since the verdict, Pakistan's first historic corruption conviction of a top politician. Safdar was jailed for one-year rigorous imprisonment for not cooperating with the NAB.
