Nawaz Sharif has had the infamous Panama investigation going on for ages, now, with the verdict constantly being delayed in the past. People had been on edge for a really long time, now. A Joint Investigative Team was set into motion and literal boxes of evidence were brought in. And ladies and gentlemen, the verdict is here.
Nawaz Sharif has been disqualified as the Prime Minister of the country and people all over the country are losing their minds, over it:

This case was less about corruption & accountability; more about reminding the political class who really runs Pakistan. #PanamaVerdict

Whatever happens now, whatever the implementation of the verdict is, we wish and hope and pray that it’s better for Pakistan. And that the conditions of the country post-Panama verdict will remain peaceful and safe because we need to find the calmer way out of this situation. We can’t afford more unrest in the country, we can’t afford instability, right now.
