The Supreme Court Bar Association (SCBA) and the Lahore High Court Bar Association (LHCBA) announced their stance on the issue and warned that if PM Sharif does not resign then they will begin a nationwide movement against him.

A joint statement said:

Both bar associations are of the view that in light of the Supreme Court’s ruling on the Panama Papers case (that questioned the moral authority of the premier to rule), PM Nawaz Sharif should no longer hold his office and should therefore resign.



The associations also stated that PM Sharif  and his children were involved in the Panama Papers scandal and the case has clearly indicted the family for financial embezzlement and corruption.

The case against the PM and his family came out in open last year after the Panama Papers leak which linked his children to offshore companies in the British Virgin Islands in relation to purchase of properties in London.
