Commenting on the Avenfield case judgement, Sharif said that it was written in the verdict that he had been absolved of corruption charges. "Having searched in several countries of the world, it had to be written that there was no evidence of corruption [against me]".

Sharif also took a jibe at former Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari and others who said that he will not return from London.
