PM denies holding Offshore organizations In Response of SC on Panamagate petitions.ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Thursday denied holding offshore companies in a written response to the Supreme Court on Panamagate petitions.
The Supreme Court on Thursday gave an ultimatum to Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s three children to respond to the notices served regarding the investigation of Panama Leaks.
The five-member larger bench of the apex court headed by Chief Justice Anwar Zaheer Jamali expressed displeasure over the Sharif family’s counsel for failing to submit a reply on behalf of Maryam, Hussain and Hassan regarding the inclusion of their names in Panama leaks. Justice Asif Saeed Khosa observed that by law, if an individual fails to submit a reply in any matter, it is to be considered that he or she is accepting the allegations.
Meanwhile, the premier in his reply stated that he had declared all his assets in 2013, hence was not liable for disqualification under Articles 62 and 63 of the Constitution.
The SC on Tuesday asked Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf to submit their Terms of Reference (ToRs) for the formation of a commission to probe the Panama Papers leaks.
The court adjourned hearing of five constitutional petitions seeking disqualification of PM Nawaz in the wake of the Panama Papers revelations. The hearing was adjourned till 11:30am on November 3.
“The commission will report to the Supreme Court,” the chief justice said, adding that the commission will have the same authority as the top court.
“SC has decided to resolve the issue of Panama leaks,” Chief Justice of Pakistan Anwar Zaheer Jamali said while asking both parties to ‘show restraint’. The bench expressed its desire that all the parties, including PTI, should reconsider their position.we Hope You Will like This Post.stay Tuned with us and keep visiting www.chilmaza.com For more latest & recent Updates.
