The petition also gave the references of accountability court s decision in Avenfield property case.

Maryam Nawaz was sentenced with eight years imprisonment along with two million pound fine while her husband was awarded one year jail term by the accountability court. However, former prime minister Nawaz Sharif was sentenced with 11 years imprisonment along with eight million pound fine.

The petition prayed the court to cancel the bails of Maryam Nawaz and her husband.
