Ousted Leader Sharif And Daughter Indicted By Anti-Corruption Court

On Thursday, a Pakistani anti-corruption court indicted former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and his daughter on allegations linked to their ownership of London properties, setting up a trial that may lead to the ousted leader being jailed. The Sharifs have claimed the corruption charges are nothing more than a conspiracy, while their opponents have hailed the case as a rare example of the rich and powerful being held accountable. Sixty-seven year-old Sharif resigned in July after being disqualified from holding office by the Supreme Court over an undeclared source of income. Sharif, his daughter Maryam Sharif and her husband, Muhammad Safdar were all indicted on Thursday. All three plead not guilty, with opening arguments for the trial expected to begin on October twenty-sixth.
