Court indicts Nawaz Sharif in 3 corruption cases

Pakistan Forward

ISLAMABAD -- An accountability court in Islamabad Wednesday (November 8) indicted Mian Muhammad Nawaz Sharif, the ousted prime minister, in three separate cases of corruption, Dawn reported.

The court rejected an application filed by Nawaz Sharif to merge the three cases, which were filed by the National Accountability Court (NAB).

Nawaz Sharif pleaded "not guilty" to all the charges. The court adjourned until November 15.

In late July, the Supreme Court removed Nawaz Sharif from office after a corruption investigation linked to the Panama Papers began against him. He began appearing in court earlier this month after facing an arrest warrant for not attending hearings since early October.
