Panama Papers case Nawaz Sharif stepped down as the Prime Minister of Pakistan minutes after the country's highest court unanimously disqualified him for life after an investigative panel found his family's wealth was far above their earnings in the Panama Papers case.

The development was confirmed by Pakistan Prime Minister's spokesperson.

In a  verdict, the top court also ordered criminal cases be opened against Sharif and his family.

The five-judge bench ruled that the Prime Minister had been dishonest to Parliament and the courts and could not be deemed fit to hold office.

The Attorney General said that the bench disqualified the Prime Minister for life.

He said cases should be opened against Maryam Nawaz (Sharif's daughter), Captain Muhammad Safdar (Maryam's husband), Hassan and Hussain Nawaz (PM Sharif's sons) as well as Prime Minister Sharif and a judgement should be announced within 30 days.

The five-judge bench -- including Justices Asif Saeed Khosa, Gulzar Ahmed, Sheikh Azmat Saeed, Ijazul Ahsan, besides Ejaz Afzal Khan --- announced the much-awaited verdict in Courtroom No. 1 of the Supreme Court in Islamabad.

The court also urged President Mamnoon Hussain to take charge of the country's affairs.

This is the third time that Nawaz Sharif has been unable to complete his term in office.
