Nawaz Sharif, Maryam Nawaz and Capt. Safdar Sentenced to Jail in Avenfield Case

The National Accountability Court (NAB) has announced its verdict in the Avenfield flats reference filed against Nawaz Sharif, Maryam Nawaz, Captain Safdar, and Nawaz Sharif’s sons. The Sharif family faced the accountability court regarding the ownership of the family’s apartments at the Avenfield House in London.

The family submitted a plea in front of NAB yesterday to delay the verdict announcement, which was denied by the accountability court.

The NAB Judge Mohammad Bashir read the 400-page decision in the presence of the lawyers representing both sides.

Found Guilty

The Sharif family has been found guilty for not giving a proper paper trail for the Avenfield apartments that the family owns in the UK.

The following sentences have been handed to the individuals under investigation in the case:

  • Nawaz Sharif: 10 years in prison and 8 million pounds fine
  • Maryam Nawaz: 7 years in prison and 2 million pounds fine
  • Capt Safdar: 1 year in jail.

A team is already on its way to arrest Captain Safdar who was conducting an election campaign in Mansehra.

The family heard the verdict at the Avenfield apartments together in the presence of former finance minister Ishaq Dar. The family will then go to Harley Street Clinic to visit Sharif’s ailing wife Kulsoom Nawaz who is fighting the battle against cancer. Nawaz’s sons were declared proclaimed offenders last year after their no-show in the court’s hearings.

The Supreme Court disqualified former prime minister on 28th July 2017 for not disclosing his employment with FZE Capital. The court then directed NAB to file references against Nawaz Sharif and his family within 6 weeks and conclude the case in 6 months. However, NAB requested extensions of about 2-3 months which were granted by the apex court.

This is a developing story. We will continue to update the post.

      Even Nawaz Sharif case took more than 5 years, nothing is going to happen overnight. People cannot go to jail just because you want them to. Someone has to file a case, then provide authentic proofs.

      This is a start, and a MOJOR step forward in our judiciary system. So many great things are to come. Just wait and watch. It may takes years, but slowly and steady, it’s definitely going to be fruitful. For the first time in YEARS, i am a little hopeful about our country.

      That’s called whataboutism and it doesn’t work in courts as a defense. Yes, there are terrible people roaming around out there who haven’t been caught yet, maybe they will be, maybe they won’t be. Whatever the case, it doesn’t excuse these corrupt people.

        Just because there are rapists and murderers roaming around out there doesn’t mean Nawaz Shareef should be set free until they’re all caught and apprehended. He and his family are paying for their corruption, simple as that.
