Pakistan Supreme Court Orders Investigation Into Corruption Allegations

On Thursday, Pakistan’s Supreme Court ruled there was insufficient evidence to order Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s removal from office over corruption allegations, however it did order further investigation into the accusations. Two of the five judges on the court bench voted for Sharif to step down, claiming he was dishonest “to the nation as well as to the parliament”, but they were out voted. The court then ordered a joint investigation team be formed to look into allegations that three of Sharif’s four children have used offshore companies to buy properties in London. The prime minister and his children have denied any wrongdoing.
