Court let-off for Pak­istan PM

Irish Daily Mail - - News -

PAK­ISTAN’S top court has asked the gov­ern­ment to in­ves­ti­gate cor­rup­tion al­le­ga­tions against the fam­ily of Prime Min­is­ter Nawaz Sharif, right. It de­lays for two months a de­ci­sion that could have jeop­ar­dised his po­lit­i­cal fu­ture.

The Supreme Court had widely been ex­pected to an­nounce puni­tive mea­sures. The case is linked to the ‘Panama pa­pers’, doc­u­ments leaked last year that ap­peared to im­pli­cate Mr Sharif’s sons in fi­nan­cial cor­rup­tion.
