The top court five-judge larger bench headed by Justice Asif Saeed Khosa has unanimously disqualified Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif for not disclosing his employment in UAE based offshore company Capital FZE.

“He [Nawaz] is no more eligible to be an honest member of the parliament, and he ceases to be holding the office of prime minister,” said Judge Ejaz Afzal Khan in court.
