Nawaz Sharif, the former prime minister of Pakistan, has been released from prison on bail as he challenges his conviction and 10-year prison sentence.

The former prime minister was briefly released earlier this month for his wife s funeral.

Sharif received 10 years for corruption, Maryam was given seven years for abetting a crime and a year for not co-operating and son-in-law Safdar Awan was given a one-year sentence also for not co-operating.

Nawaz's son-in-law Safdar was given 1-year imprisonment for not cooperating with the NAB, and aiding and abeting Nawaz and Maryam.

According to the verdict, she "aided, assisted, abetted, attempted and acted in conspiracy with her father". Maryam was convicted for concealing ownership of the properties.

The newspaper reported that the court reminded the prosecutor that "there is a room of giving the benefit of the doubt to the accused".
