Jail Sentences of Nawaz Sharif, Maryam Nawaz, Capt Safdar Suspended, Twitteratis Lose Their Minds

Previously, a 10-year sentence for Nawaz Sharif and a seven-year term were given to his daughter over corrupt practices which were linked to his family’s ownership of Avenfield flats in London.

Many are extremely disappointed and against it
#NawazSharif Sazaa suspend howee hai…. SUSPEND… معطل… Zamanat howee hai jab takk appeal sunni jaa rahi hai. Barri nahi howay Nawaz aur Maryam. Easy with the celebrations… Its a temporary relief till judgement on appeal comes.

Not only is he out again, but twitter is celebrating. I am born and raised in a regressing Pakistan, today I realised that my kids, if I have any, might too, never see this country developing. Pakistan Zindabad. #NawazSharif
