The accountability court, in a momentous decision on Friday, sentenced deposed prime mininster Nawaz Sharif to 10 years in prison. His daughter Maryam has also been sentenced to seven years in the Avenfield corruption case. Sharif's son in law, Capt (R) Safdar has also been sentenced to one year in jail.

All eyes across Pakistan were glued to TV screens as Judge Muhammad Bashir of the accountability court read out the 100-page verdict. The historic decision was to be announced earlier, but after multiple delays, the court announced the verdict in the presence of media personnel at 4:20 pm.

Of course, Twitterati was busy with their own coverage of the incident. Here, we have compiled some of the most hilarious tweets regarding the #AvenfieldReference case. Once the sentences were announced, we hit gold.
