LAHORE – PML-N Vice-President Maryam Nawaz on Wednesday departed to London to meet her father Nawaz Sharif days after getting her passport which she had surrendered for getting bail in a corruption reference.

The daughter of the deposed Pakistani premier left her Jatiumra residence with a convoy for Lahore Airport. During her travel, Maryam will stay in Doha as she booked a Qatar Airways flight to London.

Maryam traveled to Britain to inquire about her father’s health who is living in self-imposed exile.

Speaking with party leaders and supporters in Lahore airport, Maryam said she's impatient to meet her father after years. Reports in local media claimed that Maryam could stay in London for about a month and is likely to return home with Nawaz Sharif.

Earlier, the PML-N vice-president received her passport after Lahore High Court ordered the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) to return her travelling document.
