It was for three years ...five years...oh ten years - Nawaz Taal-matol Sharif

According to the documents, on the basis of a four-page application signed by Nawaz, Shahbaz Sharif, Abbas Sharif and Hussain Nawaz – then chief executive Pervez Musharraf advised then president Rafiq Tarar on December 9, 2000, to remit the sentences awarded to Nawaz under the constitution. The sentences were remitted.

Nawaz had asked the president to waive the sentences, to enable him to go abroad for medical treatment. It was also stated that the petitioner would not be prosecuted over any alleged past conduct.

The copy of an undertaking Nawaz and Shabaz signed seeking permission to go abroad revealed the Sharifs left the country for 10 years of their own accord. Nawaz’s lawyer said his client had ordered diversion of the plane carrying Musharaf to “protect the democratic set up”.
