SC resumes Panamagate Case hearing today

Islamabad (Staff Report): A five-member bench of Supreme Court led by Justice Asif Saeed Khosa resumed hearing of Panama Leaks case on its sixth day today (Wednesday).

During the last Panamagate case hearing yesterday Supreme Court (SC) took a stance that it will not set any example by disqualifying prime minister over speeches.

Justice Asif Saeed Khosa headed a 5-member bench to resume the hearing in which Justice Aijaz-ul-Ahsan said that the decision of PM’s innocence will be taken after going through the evidence.

On the other hand Justice Asif withdrew his observation about implementation of Article 62 and 63.

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) lawyer Naeem Bukhari claimed that we only have one Supreme Court which is in Pakistan, it has supreme authority and a lawyer has nothing to do with judicial verdicts.

Earlier today, PTI lawyer Naeem Bukhari told the court that former Interior Minister Rehman Malik’s report reveals ‘money trail’ source.

Justice Gulzar remarked that how can Rehman Malik make report as his own name is also in Panama Leaks.

I have no idea whether Malik was on service or not at that time, Naeem Bukhari said.

Nawaz Sharif family’s lawyer told the court that Lahore High Court had disposed of Federal Investigation Agency’s FIR over which, Justice Aijaz-ul-Ahsan said that the bench cannot give verdict on dismissed FIA’s report.

Justice Aijaz directed PTI counsel to satisfy court that National Accountability Bureau (NAB) should have appealed over Hudaibiya Paper Mills case.
