Avenfield Verdict – Former PM Sharif sentenced to 10 years imprisonment & fined £8m

Quist’s investigation into the Avenfield properties on behalf of Pakistan’s Supreme Court’s Joint Investigation Team helps secure the conviction of former PM Nawaz Sharif and his daughter Maryam Nawaz Sharif for corruption.

On Friday 6th July 2018 Pakistan’s Accountability Court issued its judgement in the corruption case against former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and his family members. The investigation and asset tracing undertaken by Quist Solicitors in relation to the Sharifs’ London properties was crucial in securing their conviction.

Transparency International have called upon the UK government to investigate the Sharif family’s assets in the UK to ensure that they are not able to continue using London as a safe haven.
