Islamabad: Pakistan’s top court on Thursday adjourned until 23 January a case alleging corruption by the prime minister, after the head of an anti-graft watchdog said he lacked evidence to arrest him.
The chief justice asked the National Accountability Bureau (NBA) to report again on progress in the long-running case after its chairman said there was not yet enough evidence to arrest Prime Minister Raja Pervez Ashraf and 15 others.
