Avenfield Case: IHC suspends jail term of Nawaz, Maryam, and Safdar

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

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.

The court said precedents of the Supreme Court "bound the NAB to follow certain procedures" in order to shift the burden of proof on accused persons, the report. Jubilant workers chanted slogans and showering the ex-premier's vehicle with rose petals.

"The prosecution has failed to show the properties belong to Nawaz Sharif", Justice Athar Minallah told the court.

Sharif's release comes a week after the death aged 68 of Kulsoom, his wife of 47 years, who had been battling cancer in a London hospital.

In the United States, we refer to them as Hurricanes , but tropical cyclones have different names in different parts of the world. Steered westward by high pressure to its north, Isaac is forecast to move through the Lesser Antilles today and tomorrow.

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.

Senior anchorperson Abdul Moiz Jafferii said that only the sentences of the Sharif family have been suspended, but they haven't been freed as such.

Another supporter in the crowd, Naveed Abbasi, said he is convinced Sharif was a victim of conspiracy but that, " God willing, the people will make Nawaz Sharif again the prime minister ... for a record fourth time".

The three are serving 10-, seven- and one-year prison sentences, respectively.

"I think a lot of it maybe got overamplified because it was the finals of the US Open ". Strycova asked. "I find it interesting that she did it only when she was losing".

The sentence and a fine of 8 million pounds, or $10.6 million, came nearly a year after Supreme Court removed Sharif from office and less than five months after the court barred him from holding office for life. The charges stemmed from the so-called leaked papers from a Panama law firm.

Reacting to Wednesday's decision, Senator Javed Faisal, a close aide of Prime Minister Khan, pointed out that the court only suspended Sharif's sentence and those of his family members, and did not acquit them. Sharif's party and others allege the July 25 polls were rigged to favor Khan, seen to be close to the army.

On Wednesday, Islamabad's high court ordered him released on bail as his appeal moves forward.

"Today the court has suspended the decision that was based on revenge", former minister Ahsan Iqbal told reporters.
