Supreme Court resumes hearing into Panama Leaks case
July 17, 2017

ISLAMABAD, 17 July: The Supreme Court on Monday resumed hearing into Pamana Leaks case to examine the Joint Investigation Team (JIT) report in which Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and his family were accused of money laundering and corruption.
Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz lawyers and Finance Minister Ishaq Dar submitted documents containing objections to the damning final report of the JIT and requested to the apex court to reject the JIT report.
A three-member apex bench, headed by Justice Ejaz Afzal Khan and comprising Justice Sheikh Azmat Saeed and Justice Ijazul Hassan, began hearing the case. The PML-N leadership termed the JIT report and probing Sharif’s family offshore properties aboard, a conspiracy against ruling family.
On the other hand, Inter-Services Public Relations Director General Maj Gen Asif Ghafoor, during a press conference, denied Pakistan Army direct involvement in the Supreme Court-mandated JIT probing the Sharif family’s wealth in the Panamagate case.
“The JIT was made by the Supreme Court. Two of its members belong to the Inter-Services Intelligence and Military Intelligence. It is a sub-Judice case, and it will go to court,” said Maj Gen Asif Ghafoor.
The JIT submitted its final investigation report in the court on July 10, recommending the filing of a corruption case against the PM and his children.
