Imran Khan to ensure presence in SC hearing against Sharif
ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan has decided to attend the Supreme Court on Thursday (tomorrow) as it hears the case against Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif over the Panama Papers.
The decision was taken in a consultative meeting of the PTI leadership at Imran Khan’s residence at Bani Gala. He will be present regularly in all hearings in the apex court as his counsel Hamid Khan will plead the case.
The PTI was scheduled to hold a lockdown which was turned into a ‘Thanksgiving Day’ after the Supreme Court accepted the application and agreed to form an commission against the Prime Minister.
The Supreme Court had on Tuesday sought written replies from the government and the PTI to come up with the Terms of Reference (ToRs) on 3rd November. The court would come up with its own ToRs if no consensus is reached over them.
A five-member bench comprising Chief Justice Anwar Zaheer Jamali, Justice Asif Saeed Khosa, Justice Amir Hani Muslim, Justice Sheikh Azmat Saeed and Justice Ijazul Hassan is hearing the case against the offshore companies of the family members of the Nawaz Sharif.
