Pakistan’s national anti-corruption agency will file criminal charges against former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and Finance Minister Ishaq Dar after a probe into their finances.

Nawazish Ali Asim, a spokesman for the National Accountability Bureau, in a text message on Thursday confirmed the decision, but didn’t say when the watchdog would file the four references. A full statement will be issued later, he said.
