Their arrest was met with a huge rally in Pakistan's second city. Sharif was sentenced to 10 years over corruption changes relating to his four luxury London flats. The four-time Prime Minister was ousted from office in 2017 by the... Еще supreme court for money-laundering after details emerged in the fabled 'Panama Papers' leak. The court's ruling is perceived as a blow to Sharif's PML-N party, which is contesting general elections as the incumbent on July 25.
