Court let-off for Pakistan PM
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.
