ISLAMABAD: Former chief justice Iftikhar Chaudhry on Saturday announced to file reference against Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, ARY News reported.

While referring towards Article 260 of the Constitution, he said Nawaz Sharif was disqualified to remain prime minister for he was no longer ‘Sadiq’ and ‘Ameen’.

“The prime minister did not state that how did he transferred his money abroad or how did he make investment in a foreign country,” he said.

He said if the ruling party had invested in foreign country through legal way then there was no need to hide it. He said reference regarding disqualification of the PM would be sent to Speaker National Assembly Ayaz Sadiq.

On the other hand, Pakistan Muslim League-N on Friday filed reference against Chairman Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Imran Khan.

Imran Khan has said reference filed against him was a bid to pressurize him to retreat from demand of investigation into Panamagate.

“Whatever actions Sharif brothers take against me, I am not going to back off from my demand of probe into Panama Leaks and will take the issue to its conclusive end,” he has said.

He questioned Pakistan Muslim League-N (PML-N) filed reference against him now, but if they had evidence of any financial wrongdoing on his part why did they wait for three years?
