Pakistan`s former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has made his first appearance before an anti-corruption court in Islamabad to face corruption charges.
Sharif was disqualified on July 28 by the Supreme Court following a probe that determined he had concealed financial assets.
His court appearance on Tuesday comes a day after he returned home from London, where he visited his wife who is being treated there.
Sharif is likely to be indicted on Oct. 2 in connection with three corruption cases, which were filed against him by the country`s anti-corruption body earlier this month.
During the court appearance, some Sharif followers started chanting slogans in his support inside the courtroom, annoying the judge, Mohammad Bashir, who then asked Pakistan`s three-time PM to leave as his lawyers were there to represent him.
