The accountability court on Friday announced the verdict in the Avenfield corruption reference filed by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB), handing ousted prime minister Nawaz Sharif 10 years as jail time for owning assets beyond income and 1 year for not cooperating with NAB. The sentences will run concurrently so he will serve 10 years in jail.



His daughter Maryam Nawaz was handed 7 years for abetment and 1 year for non-cooperation also to run concurrently, so she will serve 7 years in total.



Son-in-law Captain Safdar has been given 1 year jail time for also not cooperating with NAB.
NAB had filed the reference, along with two others, on the Supreme Court's directives in the landmark Panamagate verdict last year which deseated then PM Nawaz.



Nawaz has been handed a fine of 8 million pounds, while Maryam has been fined 2m pounds.
According to DawnNewsTV, the Sharif family, along with former finance minister Ishaq Dar, are gathered at the Avenfield flats in London to watch the verdict unfold live.
