Changing lawyers, Trump’s call will not help Sharifs in ‘Panamagate Case’: Khan
ISLAMABAD: Briefing media on the additional documentary evidence PTI submitted at the Supreme Court on Tuesday, Chairman Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) Imran Khan said, “It is not a task of political parties to provide evidences in any case.”
He added, “Evidences are provided by government institutions” during the press conference.
Khan went on to say: “We have done our part in furnishing evidences in the case, now it’s up to the court and the PM.”
“Mariam Nawaz was a beneficiary of two companies which she denied,” he said and added, “She is the owner of Nelson and Nescol companies.”
Khan said that money-laundering cash was sent outside the country which was later brought back to Pakistan.
“It is evident from the Qatari Prince letter that the property belongs to Hussain Nawaz,” said Chairman PTI and continued that “We will prove that no trust was ever made.”
Imran Khan challenged the Sharif family to deny the documentary evidence, PTI submitted at the SC today.
“We will accept the verdict of SC bench in the Panagamate case,” Khan assured the media.
‘Rulers are lying’
Jahangir Tareen, who also flanked alongside Imran, claimed the rulers were telling lies on every piece of document they submitted regarding the case.
Whoever indulges in corruption, the wealth is smuggled out of the country in the same manner. Maryam Nawaz is mentioned as the real owner.
He said according to the letter of the Qatari prince, a settlement took place in 2006. “Maryam Nawaz is the central figure in the Panama Papers case”, he alleged.
