Islamabad:  Pakistan is expected to deport Osama bin Laden's three widows and children to Saudi Arabia next week after the end of their jail term for illegally entering and living in the country, their lawyer claimed on Friday.
Lawyer Mohammed Amir Khalil told the media that the 45-day jail term given to the widows and two grown-up daughters will end on April 17 and all members of the slain Al Qaeda chief's family would be deported the following day.
There was no official word on the matter. Two of the widows are from Saudi Arabia and the third from Yemen. It could not be ascertained why the Yemeni widow would be deported to Saudi Arabia.
Earlier this month, a civil judge sentenced the five women to 45 days in prison for illegally entering and staying in Pakistan.
He said the prison term would begin from March 3, when they were formally arrested. The judge further said the family should be deported after the prison sentence ends.
Bin Laden's widows and children were detained by Pakistani intelligence agencies after the Al Qaeda chief was killed in a covert US raid in Abbottabad on May 2 last year. The family is currently being held at a house in Islamabad.
