A Pakistani court has issued arrest warrants for ousted Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif in two corruption cases spiraling from the Panama Papers leak.
A lawyer of Sharif said the accountability court issued the arrest warrant and adjourned the hearing until November 3. In late July the Supreme Court sacked Sharif following an investigation into corruption allegations against him and his family. The claims against the prime minister stemmed from the Panama Papers leak last year that revealed the Sharif family had undisclosed offshore assets. Nawaz Sharif is the 15th premier in Pakistan’s 70-year history to be ousted over corruption charges before completing a full term.
