Islamabad (July 28, 2017): Former President and chief of All Pakistan Muslim League General (retd) Pervaiz Musharraf said on Friday that the recent Supreme Court`s decision on Panama papers will bring positive impact in the country.

According to the details, Retired Gen Pervez Musharraf posted a video message to the Twitter account of the All Pakistan Muslim League (APML), hailing the Supreme Court’s disqualification of Nawaz Sharif as a “historic decision”.

“Today is a historic and important day for Pakistanis,” he said in a recorded video, in which he also briefly summarised the decision of the apex court bench.

“I want to heartily congratulate the Supreme Court bench especially because it is a brave decision which is in accordance with the principles of justice and fairness.”

He added that he wants to also congratulate the entire Supreme Court in general.

“Especially all members of the Joint Investigation Team (JIT) who bravely presented such a good investigation report to the SC bench despite all threats.”

Musharraf also said: “I fully support this decision of disqualifying the decision to disqualify Nawaz Sharif as it is a very good one.”

He welcomed the court’s order to open corruption references against other members of the Sharif family.

“Their trial should begin and they should be tried and punished according to the law,” he said in the video, which appears to have been recorded in Dubai. “I want to add that since they are under trial they should be on the Exit Control List (ECL) and not allowed to travel abroad.”

“The decision also makes me think of what happened with me. In 2008, when I resigned the PPP and Asif Ali Zardari came to power. Then in 2013, Nawaz Sharif came into power… I was disappointed and used to ask God why lies are winning and honesty is losing. But today there is victory.”

The Supreme Court ordered on Friday the disqualification of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif for owning assets beyond his declared sources of income.

Announcing their verdict in the Panama Papers case, all five judges ruled to send references against the premier, his children Maryam, Hussain and Hasan, son-in-law and Finance Minister Ishaq Dar to an accountability court.

The court ordered the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) to file a reference against the accused in an accountability court in six weeks and directed for the trial to be wrapped up within six months. The process will be overseen by a single-member implementation bench of the apex court.

The judges also ruled that the prime minister failed to disclose his role in the Dubai-based FZE Capital company in his nomination papers, saying that this meant he was not ‘honest’ and ‘truthful’, as per the Constitution.

The Supreme Court disqualified Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif for failing to disclose his un-withdrawn receivables constituting assets from UAE-based Capital FZE in his nomination papers for the 2013 elections.

Following the announcement of the verdict, Nawaz Sharif stepped down from the post of prime minister.
