Panama Papers case verdict: Nawaz Sharif, Prime Minister of Pakistan, has been disqualified from holding public office. After Sharif was named in the Panama Papers investigation, a unanimous verdict by the Supreme Court of Pakistan has dethroned him from the PM post. Meanwhile, Indians are asking when will action be taken against those convicted here. The apex court of Pakistan has ordered that a case has to be registered against Sharif. It ruled that a reference be sent to an accountability court against Sharif’s family and asked the National Accountability Bureau to wrap up the case in six weeks. This decision has made way for a trial against the 67-year-old PM in the case of corruption. Meanwhile, three of his four children have been implicated in the papers. He has been removed from the post by graft allegations earlier too in 1993.

In India, the Panama Papers investigation was carried out by The Indian Express, after the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) shared files from the database of the world’s fourth biggest offshore law firm, Mossack Fonseca. The records had been obtained from an anonymous source by German newspaper Süddeutsche Zeitung. Meanwhile, Indians took to social media platform Twitter and asked when will the courts order any kind of actions against the politicians who had been named in the papers. Over 500 Indians figure on the list of offshore companies, foundations and trusts. There are also 234 Indian passports (handed over by clients as part of the incorporation process), an eight-month-long investigation of over 36,000 files by The Indian Express has revealed.

Here is what Indians tweeted:

From film stars Amitabh Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan to corporates including DLF owner K P Singh and nine members of his family, and the promoters of Apollo Tyres and Indiabulls to Gautam Adani’s elder brother Vinod Adani. Two politicians who figure on the list are Shishir Bajoria from West Bengal and Anurag Kejriwal, the former chief of the Delhi unit of Loksatta Party, IE had reported.
