Pakistan SC disqualifies Nawaf Shariz for life from holding office

Islamabad, Apr 13 (IBNS): In a landmark verdict, Pakistan's Supreme Court has disqualified former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif for life from holding office, media reports said on Friday.

In an unanimous decision taken by a five-member bench, Sharif was handed the disqualification under Article 62 (1)(f) of the Constitution, local Dawn News reported.

Sharif cannot contest elections or become a member of parliament in the future.

Sharif was found guilty in the Panama Papers case.

Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) leader Jahangir Tareen too has been disqualified under the same article and is likely to share a similar fate.

More details awaited.
