    AN official inquiry into corruption allegations against Pakistan’s Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and his family revealed yesterday that there is a “significant disparity” between their declared wealth and known sources of income.

    Mr Sharif has faced corruption allegations since coming to power in 2013 and previously denied allegations of abusing his authority to enrich himself.

    However, he has been under pressure since documents leaked last year from a Panama-based law firm disclosed that his family had offshore accounts.

    They have appeared before a team appointed by the Supreme Court to investigate their offshore companies.

    “There exists a significant disparity between the wealth declared by the respondents and the means through which the respondents had generated income from known or declared sources,” the report says.

    It also refers to the “irregular movement” of cash gifts and loans from companies based in Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Britain to Mr Sharif, his son and companies linked to them.
