NAB will challenge the Islamabad High Court's decision to admit the Sharif family's petition and suspend their jail sentences.

Pakistan's former prime minister Nawaz Sharif was freed from jail tonight after a court suspended his sentence for corruption pending an appeal.

The court suspended the sentences of Sharif and his daughter Maryam after they were convicted in July just before Pakistan held its general election. The shocking verdict left everyone talking online and most were very unhappy.

Prosecutors in the case, the National Accountability Bureau, said they would appeal Wednesday s ruling and take the case against Sharif to the country s Supreme Court.

Another supporter in the crowd, Naveed Abbasi, said he is convinced Sharif was a victim of conspiracy but that, "God willing, the people will make Nawaz Sharif the prime minister again. for a record fourth time". Nawaz Sharif was sentenced to ten years in prison, while Maryam was imprisoned for seven years.
