An anti-corruption court has indicted Pakistan’s ousted Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, his daughter Maryam and son-in-law Captain Mohammad Safdar over corruption allegations linked to ownership of London properties.

The charges may see the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz chief getting jailed.

The order of the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) court came even though Sharif and his counsel Khawaja Harris were out of the country.

Sharif is presently in Britain, where his wife is undergoing cancer treatment.

Sharif, 67, resigned in July after the Supreme Court disqualified him from holding office over an undeclared source of income that was revealed in the Panama Papers leaks.

The Panama Papers showed that Sharif’s daughter and his two sons owned offshore companies registered in the British Virgin Islands and used them to buy posh flats in London.

The Supreme Court had also ordered the NAB to investigate and conduct a trial.
