Pakistan's Supreme Court has disqualified former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, dismissed from his post over corruption allegations last year, from holding public office for life.
 
A five-member bench of the country's apex court unanimously ruled today (Apr. 13) that anyone disqualified under a constitutional clause requiring legislators to be "honest and trustworthy" would be considered banned for life.
 
Sharif was dismissed from office as prime minister in July of last year, in a case lodged over disclosures in the Panama Papers leak, but which ultimately hinged on allegations that he had failed to declare a salary from his son's UAE-based company.
