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

The National Accountability Bureau's (NAB) special prosecutor Mohammad Akram Qureshi argued that the High Court could not have entertained petitions seeking suspension of sentence after the fixation of appeals against the conviction of the Sharif family in the case, Dawn reported.

Earlier, during hearings, Justice Minallah had observed that the accountability court's July 6 verdict-sentencing Sharif to 10 years imprisonment, Maryam to 7 years and Safdar to 1 year and barring the accused from contesting elections or holding public office for 10 years after release-was "based on the assumption that the Avenfield properties are occupied by the children but owned by Nawaz".

Along with Nawaz, the court had also pronounced his daughter Maryam and his son-in-law Safdar Awan guilty.

Sharif, Maryam and Safdar were also directed to submit bail bonds worth Rs 500,000.
