NEW YORK (UrduPoint News / Sputnik - 26th June, 2019) US President Donald Trump's former campaign chief Paul Manafort is scheduled to appear at a New York court on Thursday to face fraud-related charges, local media reported.

Manafort, who was convicted last year on Federal fraud charges, will appear before Judge Maxwell Wiley around 2:15 p.m. (6:15 p.m. GMT), CNN reported.

Manafort will be arraigned on New York state fraud charges. An arraignment is a formal reading of charges.

In March, Manafort was sentenced to seven and a half years in prison for a host of financial fraud and foreign lobbying violations as a result of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation.

Later, Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance announced a criminal indictment on 16 counts of various state crimes, including falsifying business records and mortgage fraud.
