Former Pakistan PM Nawaz Sharif bag to 10 years jail for corruption,her daughter gets 7, fined $2.6 million

Former Pakistan Prime minister, Nawaz Sharif and her daughter has been sentenced to 10 years and 7yrs jail respectively for corruption.

Nawaz Sharif was handed an £8 million ($10.5 million) fine over corruption charges related to his family’s purchase of overseas properties, dealing a blow to his party’s prospects ahead of a general election later this month.

Judge Mohammad Bashir handed down the sentences in a court in Islamabad Friday. None of the defendants were present for the verdict — Sharif and his daughter are currently in London with Sharif’s wife, who is receiving cancer treatment, and Safdar is in Pakistan but was reportedly unable to attend.

Prosecution lawyer Sardar Muzaffar Abbas also said that the court had ordered the properties be confiscated.

Both Nawaz Sharif and Maryam are in London, attending to the former PM’s wife, Kulsoom Nawaz, who was diagnosed with throat cancer last year and shifted to the UK for treatment. Since then, Maryam and Nawaz Sharif have made several trips back and forth from London to attend the hearings and attend to Kulsoom

Since then, Maryam and Nawaz Sharif have made several trips back and forth from London to attend the hearings and attend to Kulsoom.

Nawaz Sharif wanted the announcement of the verdict delayed by a week, but that request was dismissed by the court today. Mr Sharif had said he wanted to hear the judgement of the case while standing in the courtroom where he “endured more than 100 hearings” with his daughter.

Nawaz Sharif and Maryam were also fined heavily by the court. While Nawaz Sharif will have to pay $10 million, his daughter has been fined $2.6 million.

The court judgement runs over 100 pages.
The Avenfield case was among the four corruption cases filed against the former PM and his children by the NAB on the Supreme Court’s orders in the Panama Papers case which disqualified Nawaz Sharif.

Nawaz Sharif, a three-time prime minister, resigned from the post last year after Pakistan’s Supreme Court disqualified him from holding public office and ruled that graft cases be filed against him and his children over the Panama Papers scandal.
