Pakistan's ousted Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif in court on corruption charges



Ousted Pakistan PM Nawaz Sharif has appeared in court charged with corruption after the Panama Papers leak.
 
The papers, leaked from a law firm in Panama in 2016, indicated Mr Sharif's sons failed to declare several offshore companies, some of which helped them to buy properties in London's Mayfair.
 
 
Mr Sharif denies charges of corruption stemming from documents.


He arrived at court flanked by security, along with his daughter and son-in-law, who also face charges of corruption.


An investigation accused Mr Sharif of concealing assets and hiding his family's wealth by overemphasising his father's.
