Panama Papers: Pakistan Supreme Court Disqualifies PM Nawaz Sharif

In a historic decision in the history of Pakistan, the Pakistan Supreme Courts has disqualified prime minister of Pakistan Nawaz Sharif and to leave the office immediately. The court has asked the National Accountability Bureau to file reference against the prime minister based on the observations / findings of the JIT.

The decision was announced today by a five bench of judges of Supreme Court of Pakistan. Besides the Prime Minister, the sitting fiance minister Ishaq Dar has also been disqualified. Prime Minister's son in law Captain (retd) Safdar has also been disqualified by the court. Court also directed NAB to file reference against Prime Minister's daughter Maryam Safdar for filing forged papers in the court. 

The Panama Papers leaked in 2015 by a Panamanian law firm and corporate service provider Mossack Fonseca contain personal and financial information about wealthy individuals across the globe. Nawaz Sharif is not the only victim of Panama Papers as earlier prime minister of Iceland was forcced to resign as his name appeared in the papers.

The decision would go a long way in history of Pakistan to ensure a corruption free environment and harness those involved in malafide practices and looting of the national wealth.
