PTI not to disrupt legal proceedings in Panamagate case
ISLAMABAD: A relatively content Chairman Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) Imran Khan on Monday said his party would not do anything that could disrupt the Panamagate case proceedings at the Supreme Court.
Commenting on the case hearing today, Imran Khan said Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif was still not ready for accountability in the case since he even failed to submit evidences today.
Chairman PTI told media representatives that when the premier was ready to explain everything seven months ago, he should not hide anything even now because as the head of a state he was democratically bound to satisfy the nation.
To his surprise, Khan said, the court was told today that London flats were bought in 2005 although Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leaders themselves had admitted the same flats had been Sharif family’s property since the 90s.
Even Awami Muslim League (AML) Chief Sheikh Rasheed visited those flats, Khan claimed during the media briefing.
He said that PTI would also prove in the court that Maryam Nawaz was a dependent child of the prime minister.
Imran Khan said during Monday’s hearing the Supreme Court of Pakistan also supported PTI’s stance by observing that the state institutions particularly National Accountability Bureau (NAB) were not working as they were supposed to.
Chairman PTI said the apex court was willing to close the case at the earliest and has hinted that if the prime minister could answer only four questions, there would be no need to form a judicial commission to probe the Panamagate scandal.
Adjourning the hearing of the infamous ‘Panama Papers’ leaks case until November 15, the apex court on Monday ordered Maryam Nawaz, Hussain Nawaz and Hasan Nawaz to file documents related to their properties before then after they submit their replies earlier today.
