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

The decision to suspend the Accountability Court decision in Avenfield Reference against the Sharif family was given by a division bench of the Islamabad High Court comprising Justice Athar Minallah and Justice Mian Gul Hassan.

A two-judge bench of the Islamabad High Court heard the petitions filed by former Sharif, 68, his daughter Maryam and son-in-law Capt (retd) Muhammad Safdar challenging their conviction related to the purchase of luxury flats in London.

Sharif, his daughter and son-in-law will now each have to pay 500,000 Pakistani rupees (roughly $4,000) in separate surety bonds before their release.

The Islamabad High Court made the decision on Wednesday on a corruption case handed down to the Sharifs by an anti-graft tribunal earlier this year.

Jessica Simpson Announces Baby Number 3
So sweet! Jessica waited until she was actually a few months along to announce her pregnancy on September 18. Earlier this year, Simpson admitted that she had "baby fever" and that she and her hubby "always practice".

2 November 2016: Supreme Court agrees to set up a judicial commission to probe corruption allegations against Sharif, stemming from Panama Papers leaks.

Sharif was arrested on his return to the country in July this year.

The court also dismissed the National Accountability Bureau's request to first announce a judgment on the maintainability of the pleas.

Sharif remains barred from running for public office for life, after the Supreme Court in April ruled that he had lied on a parliamentary wealth declaration and that the disqualification from that crime would last for an indefinite period. Nawaz Sharif was sentenced to ten years in prison, while Maryam was imprisoned for seven years. Maryam was sentenced to eight years, while Safdar was given a one-year sentence. All three leaders later moved to Adiala Jail Rawalpindi.
