The Sharif family has been charged with corruption in three cases.
The court asked the national anti-corruption bureau to launch a probe into the allegations against Sharif, which stem from the Panama Papers leak a year ago linking his family to lucrative offshore businesses.
He now stands as an exemplar of two of the country's most central issues: as a staunch defender of civilian governance amid military manipulation, and as a symbol of a venal Pakistani elite that has alienated much of the public.
Sharif was sentenced to 10 years in prison in the Avenfield properties case while his daughter Maryam was sentenced to seven years.
The court ruled that the Sharif family's Avenfield apartments in London shall be seized by the federal government.
A defiant Nawaz Sharif Friday said he has been sent to jail because he tried to free the people of Pakistan from the slavery imposed on them by some generals and judges and vowed to continue his political struggle from behind the bars. Maryam's husband and PML-N lawmaker Muhammad Safdar was sentenced to one year in prison, prosecution lawyer Sardar Muzaffar Abbasi said.

However, after being disqualified from contesting due to her conviction in the Avenfield reference case, the covering candidates of PML-N will vie for the seats.
Khan is running on a socially conservative, anti-corruption platform.
Hours before the verdict, Maryam's husband Safdar referred to it as a "funeral" for justice, the PML-N media office said in a statement.
