Sharbat Gula, whose haunting green eyes made her famous, fled Soviet-occupied Afghanistan as a child and was pictured in 1984 in a refugee camp in Pakistan.
Mrs Gula has been accused of living in Pakistan on fake identity papers and faces up to 14 years in jail.
Pakistan recently launched a crackdown on fake IDs.
There are strict restrictions to getting a Pakistani ID card, which is needed for opening a bank account or to buy property.
