Bastian Obermayer, the German Pulitzer Prize winning journalist who broke the Panama Papers story, termed the decision by the Supreme Court of Pakistan as ‘historic’ on Friday.

Ever since the Sharif family’s name surfaced in the Panama Papers scandal last year, the entire world has followed the Pakistani premier’s disqualification case with interest.

After the apex court on Friday disqualified Sharif from holding the prime minister’s office, German journalist Bastian Obermayer who had broken the Panama Papers news last year, termed the decision as a historic one.

As news broke of the Supreme Court’s verdict, supporters of rival political party Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf took to the streets and distributed sweets and danced to the beat of drums.
