The court will review the basis on which the sentences of the Sharif family were suspended.

Nawaz Sharif, his daughter Maryam and son-in-law Captain (retd) Safdar were released from Adiala Jail on September 19 after the Islamabad High Court suspended their sentences.

They were sentenced to 10, seven and one year respectively by an accountability court for failing to disclose ownership of Avenfield apartments in London.
