April 20, 2017

PESHAWAR, 20 April: The Supreme Court of Pakistan is set to announce the much awaited verdict in the Panama Leaks case today (Thursday) at 2:00pm.

Strict security measures have been taken in Islamabad, especially at the Red Zone, ahead of the court verdict. The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf and other parties had filed a case in the apex court after reports emerged about offshore wealth of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s children. The petitions sought disqualification of the prime minister over alleged hiding of assets.

A bench of the apex court headed by Chief Justice Mian Saqib Nisar after completing long hearing of the case reserved the verdict which will be announced today.

The PTI chief Imran Khan said ahead of the verdict that the party will decide future line of action after the court ruling. The PTI vice chairman Shah Mehmood Qureshi has also asked the party workers not to show any reaction on the court verdict before the party leaders’ press conference.

The security staff of the Supreme Court has issued special passes to people who will enter the court premises during the court verdict. The entry of other people in the court will be banned. The court has also banned any kind of gathering in the premises of the Supreme Court.

The prime minister has also forbidden PML-N workers from gathering outside the court during the verdict.
