PTI response over Islamabad High Court verdict against Sharif family appeals

*ISLAMABAD - Pakistan Tehreek e Insaaf has responded over the Islamabad High Court decision in the Avenfield properties case.*

*Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Senator Faisal Javed Khan says one must understand that the court suspended jail sentence of Sharifs, not cancelled it.*

Khan said Nawaz Sharif and his jailed family members remain convicts and plunderers of national wealth. “They are guilty, and their conviction charges are still intact,” asserted the PTI leader.

He added that the court decision was mere suspension of the imprisonment they were facing, and it’s not cancellation of the sentence given to the Sharifs.

“The ultimate destination of Sharifs is Adiala Jail as more verdicts in different cases are yet to come,” said the PTI leader.

He insisted that the Sharifs failed to proved themselves in the court, “and that was reason they were imprisoned by the court”.To a question, he said the PTI government couldn’t interfere in proceedings in the case by National Accountability Bureau or any other institution.

As an interim relief, the Islamabad High Court (IHC) today suspended the conviction of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif , his daughter Maryam Nawaz and son-in-law Captain (retd) Safdar in the Avenfield properties case.

A division bench comprising Justice Athar Minallah and Justice Miangul Hassan Aurangzeb suspended their sentence through a short verdict.

The bench ordered release of the incarcerated members of the Sharif family against a surety of Rs 500,000 each.
