ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Shah Mehmood Qureshi on Saturday said Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif had been allowed a second chance in the Supreme Court but he failed to prove his innocence in the Panama Papers case.

?Nawaz Sharif has failed to prove his innocence. He is no longer ?Saadiq? and ?Ameen? and stands to be disqualified,? Qureshi said while addressing media here earlier today.

The PTI leader claimed the PM failed to submit his money trail and false documents were presented on the premier?s behalf before the apex court.

?We are anxiously waiting for the verdict,? Qureshi said.

The PTI leadership and legal team met on Friday after the Supreme Court announced it had reserved its judgment in the Panama case. PTI chief Imran Khan, who chaired the meeting, reiterated calls for the PM to resign and said the party won't let Nawaz Sharif create any undemocratic crisis in the country.

The meeting was attended by PTI Vice Chairman Shah Mehmood Qureshi, Jahanghir Tareen, Naeemul Haq, Arif Alvi, Shafqat Mahmood and Awami Muslim League leader Sheikh Rasheed.

Earlier on Friday, the Supreme Court while reserving its judgment in the Panama Papers case observed that matters related to the prime minister?s disqualification would be evaluated. During the hearing, the bench also directed for the confidential Volume X of the JIT report to be made available to the premier?s counsel.

Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif also chaired a meeting the same day, which was attended by Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif, federal ministers, advisers and the legal team. It was decided during the meeting that the party will accept the Supreme Court?s verdict even if it was unfavourable.
