- Story Text: Pakistan's Supreme Court is expected to rule on Friday (July 28) over a scathing corruption report into the family wealth of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, with analysts split on whether it will dismiss Sharif outright or recommend a fresh investigation and corruption trial by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB).
Few expect the judges to drop the case, since the Supreme Court appointed the investigatory panel that alleged the Sharif family's wealth was beyond its means.
Sharif has denied wrongdoing and slammed the 254-page report by the Joint Investigation Team (JIT) as biased and slanderous. He has also rejected opposition demands to stand down.
