Why Maryam Nawaz Sharif’s Upcoming Arrest Has Become A Headache For Pakistan

The imminent arrest Friday evening of Maryam Nawaz Sharif, daughter of former Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, is proving to be a headache for Pakistan’s nodal anti-corruption body, according to reports in the country’s media.
