Pakistan court orders PM to appear in corruption case
ISLAMABAD (AP) - Pakistan's supreme court is demanding the country's prime minister appear before it to explain why he has not taken action they've requested looking into corruption allegations against the president.
The head of a five-judge panel said on Wednesday that Prime Minister Raja Pervaiz Ashraf must appear on Aug 27.
The announcement is part of a long-running battle between the president and prime minister and Pakistan's highest court.
The court wants the prime minster to write a letter to Swiss authorities asking them to reopen an old corruption case against President Asif Ali Zardari.
