Islamabad High Court on Wednesday ordered the release of former Pakistani prime minister Nawaz Sharif and his daughter, Maryam Nawaz in an ongoing corruption case. The order comes as a relief for the father-daughter duo who were sentenced to 10 and 7 years in jail after the Federal Judicial Complex of Pakistan found them guilty in the case on July 6, 2018 – charges that both have denied.

This order comes only a week after Mr Sharif and his daughter were temporarily released from prison to attend funeral services for his wife, Kulsoom, who died of cancer in London.

Nawaz Sharif's release is sure to raise fresh questions over the alleged role of the ISI and the Army in the recently concluded general elections in Pakistan. Already, a number of analysts have taken to Twitter to express their views on the matter.
