Pakistan court sentences ousted PM Nawaz Sharif to 10 years imprisonment in corruption case

An accountability court in Pakistan today sentenced ousted prime minister Nawaz Sharif to 10 years in prison in one of the three corruption cases against him in the high-profile Panama Papers scandal. 

His daughter Maryam was sentenced to seven years and son-in-law Captain (retired) Safdar to one year. 

Accountability court judge Mohammad Bashir pronounced the verdict behind closed doors. The court delivered the verdict after postponing it for four times in the Avenfield corruption case -- pertaining to the ownership of four flats in the posh Avenfield House in London.

Nawaz Sharif is in London attending to his wife Kulsoom Nawaz who was diagnosed with throat cancer last year.

While Nawaz Sharif was fined 10 million dollar, his daughter Maryam was handed down a 2.6 million dollar fine.

The judgement runs in over 100 pages.

The ruling came weeks before the general elections in Pakistan on the 25th of July.
