D Day for NAWAZ

Neither a clean chit nor a disqualification the drawn out Supreme Court case probing the Sharif family’s alleged corruption in the Panamagate case ended today as the court ordered the formation of a Joint Investigation Team to probe how the family's money was transferred to Qatar. The prime minister and his party breathed a collective sigh of relief, as the fear of an extreme verdict the premier's ouster dissolved and gave way to celebrations. The final verdict was split 3-2 among the five-judge bench, with two dissenting notes in the judgement by Justice Asif Saeed Khosa and Justice Gulzar Ahmed. The two judges ruled against PM Nawaz Sharif, saying he should be disqualified, whereas the other three were in favour of forming a JIT. The premier's daughter, Maryam Nawaz, tweeted a photo of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, his family and PML-N leaders celebrating the verdict with smiles and embraces.
