The IHC accepted the appeals by them against the verdict announced by the accountability which convicted them on July 06 in the corruption case. Justice Miangul Hassan Aurangzeb and Justice Athar Minallah were the IHC bench members who summoned that hearing. However, all three were also ordered to submit bail bonds of Rs 0.5 million each.

Hearings in two other corruption cases against Sharif and his family are continuing at an anti-corruption court. Khan backs down from lockdown threat. He was arrested on July 13 upon returning from London, where his wife was receiving treatment before her death this month.

Earlier, the bench reserved the verdict after the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) Special prosecutor Mohammad Akram Qureshi concluded his final argument.

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. Sharif, 68, Maryam, 44, and Safdar, 54, were sentenced to 11 years, eight years and one year, respectively, in prison in the Avenfield properties case. Justice Aurangzeb questioned how Maryam was sentenced for the ownership of the Avenfield apartments alongside her father-as both can not be sentenced under the same indictment charges. Subsequently appeals were filed in Islamaba High Court to suspend the jail sentence against the Sharifs.
