Pakistan’s Ex-PM Sharif Returns Home for Court Hearing
Local Editor

Pakistan's ousted Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif appeared in court on Friday, a day after returning from overseas to face corruption allegations that saw him ejected from office and targeted with an arrest warrant.

In a brief hearing in Islamabad, Sharif paid two surety bonds of 5 million rupees [$48,000] each before leaving under tight security, his lawyer Khawaja Haris told AFP.
The court is set to reconvene on Nov. 7.

The former premier, who was forced out by the Supreme Court in July over a scandal kindled by the Panama Papers leak, had been facing an arrest warrant for failing to appear at hearings since early October.

He has spent most of the time since in London. Sharif arrived in Islamabad on Thursday.

Sharif became the 15th premier in Pakistan's 70-year history to be ousted before completing a full term, after the corruption investigation against him.

The claims against him stemmed from the Panama Papers leak last year, which sparked a media frenzy over the luxurious lifestyles and high-end London property portfolio owned by his family.

Sharif and his supporters denied the allegations and hinted at a political conspiracy driven by the powerful military.
