Nawaz Sharif to be questioned on money laundering case

Pakistan's anti-graft tribunal on Friday has ordered that convicted ex-Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif be questioned on money laundering allegations over the next two weeks.

Today’s decision saw Sharif being brought under tight security before the anti-graft tribunal in the eastern city of Lahore to hear the money laundering charges, reports AP.

It's yet another corruption case against Sharif, who is serving a seven-year sentence for corruption, reports AP.

Sharif, who served as Pakistan's premier three times, was ousted from office by the Supreme Court in 2017 because of corruption charges against him.

Subsequent elections brought Imran Khan to power.
