  • Sharif Returns - Is Arrested - And 'Deported'

    Former Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif returned to Pakistan for the first time since his ouster in 1999, was arrested upon his arrival, and has been deported to Saudi Arabia.

    Sharif agreed to not return to Pakistan for 10 years in 2000. That agreement has been challenged in the Pakistan courts and the Pakistani Supreme Court has ruled that he must not be arrested upon his return to Pakistan. The Pakistani government has denied that Sharif was deported offering instead that his departure was according to the terms of the 2000 agreement between Sharif and Musharraf.
