Panama Papers case: Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has been disqualified by the Supreme Court after finding him guilty. Pakistan Supreme Court has also sent the Panamagate graft case against Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to anti-corruption court for trial. This was Sharif’s third time as PM, but it too has been cut short, this time due to the corruption probe into his family wealth. It is being reported that a criminal investigation too would be started against the former PM and his family.
