Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan on Thursday said Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif's conversation with US President-elect Donald Trump cannot "save him" from the Panama Papers scandal.

The PTI chairman tweeted saying that while it was good news that Trump spoke to Sharif, the chat will do no favour to the premier in the Panamagate case.

Khan was referring to the premier's telephonic conversation with Trump on Wednesday, during which Sharif congratulated America's president-elect on his recent victory in the US polls.

In a taunting reference to a letter by Qatari prince Sheikh Hamad bin Jassim bin Jaber Al-Thani, the PTI chairman said Sharif could not be saved from the Panama Papers scandal "even if a Trump letter arrived".

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 Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif's family and his involvement in the London apartments that are at the centre of the Panama Papers controversy.
