BREAKING: A high court in Pakistan has ordered the release from prison of former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, his daughter Maryam Nawaz & son-in-law Capt (r) Mohd Safdar after suspending the verdict of an accountability court which had sentenced them to 10, 7 & 1 yr respectively

The Sharif family had challenged the Accountability Court order which convicted them on July 06 in the corruption case.

The IHC has earlier reserved the verdict after both sides concluded their arguments.

Judge Athar Minallah on Tuesday issued an initial order that even if the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) prosecutor does not conclude his arguments, a verdict will be announced on the pleas.

When the hearing resumed today, NAB Prosecutor, Akram Qureshi  began his arguments against the pleas. After the NAB official,  Nawaz Sharif’s counsel Khawaja Haris  took 10 mins to conclude his arguments.

However, the NAB prosecutor stated that the second Panama judgment is still under process. Justice Athar said all the judges signed the second Panama judgment. Justice Miangul added: “The first judgment did not disqualify Nawaz and it was issued by minority judges.”
