Sharifs' jail sentences suspended in corruption case, to be released

The Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Wednesday suspended jail terms of former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, his daughter Maryam Nawaz and son-in-law Captain (retired) Muhammad Safdar on a surety of Rs 0.5 million each. The court also orders the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) to open a criminal trial into ownership of the London flats along with several other Panama Papers revelations.

United Arab Emirates (UAE) authorities have also not verified the transfer of the money, he added. An accountability court had found them guilty over his family's ownership of four luxury flats in London.

Nawaz Sharif and Maryam Nawaz were on parole last week for wife Kulsoom's funeral.

Justice Minallah had then remarked, "This is an important case and would have been great if we concluded it today". He had also asked if Maryam's assets are beyond her known sources of income to which the NAB prosecutor responded in the affirmative.

It is to be mentioned here that former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, Maryam Nawaz and Captain Safdar were convicted and sentenced to prison in absentia for ten years, seven years and one year respectively, in Avenfield verdict.

Both Nawaz and Maryam were arrested upon their arrival in Pakistan from London on July 13 and filed appeals challenging their convictions in the case on July 16 in the Islamabad High Court.

Sharif was disqualified from office by the country's Supreme Court previous year over corruption allegations.

Nawaz Sharif was convicted under section 9 (a)(5) of the NAB ordinance.

Sharif has repeatedly called the cases against him politically motivated, suggesting collusion between the powerful military and courts to destabilize his Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz party and throw him out of power.

Nawaz's son-in-law was given 1 year jail time - for not cooperating with NAB, and aiding and abeting Nawaz and Maryam.

Justice Minallah read the judgment and suspended the sentences handed to the three by accountability court judge Mohammad Bashir on July 6.

15 September 2018: NAB moves Supreme Court to stop Islamabad High Court from suspending jail sentence against the Sharifs.
