The Islamabad High Court suspended on Wednesday the jail sentences of former Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, his daughter and son-in-law in a corruption case, according to media reports.

The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has made a decision to challenge today's ruling of the Islamabad High Court that ordered release of former premier Nawaz Sharif, his daughter Maryam Nawaz and Captain (retd) Safdar on bail.

The bench ordered release of the incarcerated members of the Sharif family against a surety bond of Rs500, 000 each.

"How Nawaz Sharif can own property when the ownership of the same rests with his children?" Nawaz, Maryam and Capt (retd) Safdar were also directed to submit bail bonds worth 5 lakh Pakistani rupees each.

Both appealed against the sentences and have denied any wrongdoing.

In July 2017, the Pakistani Supreme Court disqualified Sharif from office over corruption allegations. The charges stemmed from the so-called leaked papers from a Panama law firm. The court also orders the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) to open a criminal trial into ownership of the London flats along with several other Panama Papers revelations.

Dozens of jubilant supporters chanted "Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif!" outside the court after the decision was announced.

13 April, 2018: The Supreme Court further rules Sharif is banned from political office for life.

"It was written in the accountability court verdict that Nawaz had not been involved in corruption", the opposition leader noted, saying that soon Nawaz would be among them.

Safdar was arrested by the NAB authorities in Rawalpindi on July 9 while Nawaz Sharif and Maryam were taken into custody by the officials few minutes after their flight landed at Lahore's Allama Iqbal International Airport on Friday night and shifted to Adiala Jail. Subsequently appeals were filed in Islamaba High Court to suspend the jail sentence against the Sharifs.
