IS­LAM­ABAD Pak­istan’s dis­graced ex-pm Sharif re­turns home from Lon­don

The Myanmar Times - Weekend - - World - AP

PAK­ISTAN’S dis­graced for­mer Prime Min­is­ter Nawaz Sharif has re­turned home from Lon­don to face trial in cor­rup­tion cases.

Sharif was re­ceived by se­nior Cab­i­net min­is­ters from his rul­ing Pak­istan Mus­lim League party and was taken to a gov­ern­ment guest house af­ter his ar­rival at the Is­lam­abad air­port Thurs­day.

Sharif’s po­lit­i­cal fu­ture has been in doubt since July, when the Supreme Court dis­qual­i­fied him from of­fice over cor­rup­tion charges. He was in­dicted last month and has en­tered a not guilty plea through his lawyer. –
