'As you sow, so shall you reap', Imran on Avenfield verdict

Capt Safdar in Mansehra today

Supporters of Pakistan Muslim League - Nawaz hold his pictures as they chant slogans to condemn the verdict of accountability court on an anti-corruption case against ousted Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and his daughter, during a protest in Islamabad, Pakistan July 6, 2018.

Bashir also fined Sharif a sum of 8 million British pounds, about $10.6 million while his daughter was fined 2 million British pounds, about $2.6 million.

The guilty verdict in absentia against Sharif, 68, threatens to end the career of one of Pakistan's most high-profile politicians of the last four decades, a political survivor who was prime minister three times.

His daughter, Maryam Nawaz has been sentenced to seven years of imprisonment in the Avenfield corruption case, Geo TV reported.

Syria rebels mull tough Russian terms for southern handover
Jordan and Israel have said their borders would remain closed, even as tens of thousands of Syrians flee the government offensive. However, shelling and battles continued in other areas in the western countryside of Daraa, according to the observatory report.

The court has also ordered the federal government to confiscate the London apartments. The pair face arrest should they return to Pakistan.

The verdict, a potentially significant boost for the main opposition party led by former World Cup cricketer Imran Khan, immediately raised questions over whether Sharif will return to Pakistan from London, where his wife is receiving cancer treatment. Nawaz had already been disqualified a year ago to contest these elections, and his brother Shehbaz Sharif is now leading the party to the polls.

"We reject this decision", his brother Shahbaz Sharif, who is leading the PML-N into Pakistan's second ever democratic transition of power, told a televised press conference in Lahore shortly after the verdict.

As per an election campaign travel log of party supremo Imran Khan, he will be making several campaign stops at 25 different cities of Punjab, Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa and Sindh ahead of the July 25 general election. The Avenfield case and Sharif's disqualification makes clear an attempt at election engineering by the powerful military to enhance the fortunes of the PTI and all the other extremist political parties - Lashkar-e-Taiba supported Milli Muslim League (through Allaha-u-Akbar Tehreek), Tehreek Labbaik Pakistan and ultra-conservative Muttahida Majlis-e-Amal, all of which have entered the electoral arena this year seeking to benefit from the discrediting of the PML-N and PPP, with adequate propping up by Rawalpindi.

Brazil legend Ronaldo calls World Cup media criticism of Neymar diving 'nonsense'
Japan. "We have to learn to suffer", said Neymar . "We wasted a lot of time because of one single player", Osorio said. Brazil's steady progress into the quarter-finals of the World Cup has marked them out as one of the favorites.

Khan is running on a socially conservative, anti-corruption platform. The former PML-N chief invited the masses to take to the streets in his movement to reclaim the votes.

PML-N officials also accuse the military of using its muscle to twist the arm of the media to restrict coverage of criticism of the judiciary and military by Sharif and his allies. The companies are owned by Mr. Sharif's son Hussain Nawaz.

Yet the market remained largely calm yesterday as the accountability court kept delaying the announcement of the verdict throughout the day, first dropping 200 points into the red but closing at 45 points in the clear.

Following the coup he was allowed to go into exile in Saudi Arabia, returning in 2007 before becoming prime minister for a third time in 2013.
