PML-N president, opposition leader in the parliament and former chief minister Punjab Shahbaz Sharif also expressed his gratitude and thanked Allah Almighty on the SC decision.
On the other hand, Nawaz Sharif has also been informed of the court decision in Kot Lakhpat jail.
Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, his daughter Maryam and son-in-law Capt (retd) Safdar were released from jail in September after the IHC suspended their sentences. They were sentenced by an accountability court in July after being found guilty of corrupt practices related to the ownership of four luxury flats in central London.
The IHC’s division bench comprising Justice Athar Minallah and Justice Miangul Hassan Aurangzeb allowed the petitions of the Sharif family members against the accountability court s judgment in the Avenfield reference.
