ISLAMABAD (AP) — An anti-corruption court is set to rule on two cases against Pakistan's former prime minister Nawaz Sharif.

Sharif, who was removed from office last year after being disqualified from serving his third stint as prime minister, could be sentenced to prison. He is accused of possessing assets beyond his known sources of income. He has denied any wrongdoing.

Ahead of Monday's verdict, Ahsan Iqbal, a senior leader from Sharif's opposition Pakistan Muslim League party, said "it will be unfortunate" if Sharif is sentenced.

Sharif was sentenced to 10 years in prison in July over the purchase of luxury apartments in London. He appealed that sentence and was released on bail in September.
