ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court of Pakistan will hear an appeal today (Monday) filed by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) challenging the Islamabad High Court (IHC) order in the Avenfield case suspending sentences of Nawaz Sharif, his daughter Maryam Nawaz and her husband capt (retd) Safdar, ARY News reported. A five member larger bench of the apex court headed by Chief Justice Mian Saqib Nisar will hear the appeal. The other members of the bench are: Justice Asif Saeed, Justice Mushir Alam, Justice Gulzar Ahmed and Justice Mazhar Alam. An accountability court on July 6, 2018 sentenced former premier Nawaz Sharif to a total of 10 years in prison and directed him to pay a fine of £8 million after finding him guilty on different charges in the Avenfield properties case. Judge Muhammad Bashir had handed out seven-year imprisonment to the former premier’s daughter Maryam Nawaz and a fine of £2 million. While her husband Safdar was awarded one year’s jail term. However on Sept 19, the IHC suspended the conviction of Sharif, Maryam and Safdar in the case. A division bench comprising Justice Athar Minallah and Justice Miangul Hassan Aurangzeb suspended their sentence through a short verdict. The verdict came on a petition filed by Nawaz Sharif, his daughter and her spouse seeking suspension of the Avenfield verdict until a final decision on their appeals against the sentence.
