Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s conversation with US President-elect Donald Trump cannot “save him” from the Panama Papers scandal, cricketer-turned politician Imran Khan said on Thursday. While it was good news that Trump spoke to Sharif, the chat will do no favour to the premier in the Panamagate case, the Tehreek-i-Insaf chairman tweeted.

Watch what else is making news:

Khan was referring to Sharif’s telephonic conversation with Trump on Wednesday, during which the Pakistani premier congratulated America’s president-elect on his recent victory in the US polls. Trump told Prime Minister Sharif that he has a “very good reputation”. In a taunting reference to a letter by Qatari prince Sheikh Hamad bin Jassim bin Jaber Al-Thani, Khan said Sharif could not be saved from the Panama Papers scandal “even if a Trump letter arrived”, Dawn reported.

The Qatari prince’s letter was submitted in the Supreme Court in connection with the Panamagate case. In the letter, the Qatari royal had described his father’s business ties with Sharif’s family and his involvement in the London apartments that are at the centre of the Panama Papers controversy.

Khan on November 14 submitted the documents containing details of alleged bank accounts held by the Sharif family and loan write-off schemes.

    Nawaz Sharif is a crock he is half of India's problem.....the best thing that can happen for India is to have this bent crock removed and replaced with a more stable leader like Imran Khan.....recently Imran Khan said he would sit with India and resolve its difference he is also a great advocate of Justice and promised he would do everything to stop stan soil from being used by terrorists. We should try persuade USA to use its influence to get Nawaz to step down for the better good of regional secuirty and safety. lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;PS Nawaz Sharif often pays off crocks to carry out terrorist acts and blames India to divert attention from his own corrupt practices....and to rally up India senitments. Lets get rid of him.
