Pakistan’s former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has been released from prison, two months after he began a 10-year jail sentence for corruption.
The release came hours after a court suspended the sentences of Sharif and his daughter Maryam, who were jailed shortly before July’s general election.
Sharif’s Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) lost to Imran Khan’s Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) later that month.
The decision came during the Sharifs’ appeal. They have denied wrongdoing.
Sharif, his daughter and son-in-law Safdar Awan were reportedly “showered” with rose petals by supporters as their convoy left Adiala jail, according to Pakistani news site Dawn.
