Pakistan’s Prime Minister, Nawaz Sharif, will know his political fate on Thursday as the country’s Supreme Court is set to issue its ruling on corruption claims against him.

Questions arose over his family’s business dealings when three of his children were linked to offshore accounts in the Panama papers leaks.

Mr Sharif and his family have however denied any wrongdoing, dismissing the claims as politically motivated.

The government also said that it is confident that Mr Sharif will be cleared.

The case has made headlines in recent months and stocks briefly fell on the announcement that a decision would be delivered later today.
