PM Nawaz reply in Panama Leaks case says PTI evidence based on lies
ISLAMABAD: (Parliament Times) Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Thursday submitted his reply in theÂ Supreme Court in whichÂ he said that PTI’s ‘proofs’ were based on lies.
Imran Khan has not come up with solid evidence, the reply stated.
On Wednesday, the children of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif submitted a petition in the Supreme Court against documents submitted by PTI in the Panama Leaks case.
The petition submitted by Maryam, Hasan and Hussain Nawaz states that the 683 pages submitted by the PTI were just pieces of paper and did not have any legal standing.
The petition was submitted by Advocate Akram Sheikh on behalf of the prime ministerâ€™s children.
In the last hearing, Justice Azmat Saeed said documents submitted by PTI had no relevanceÂ with the case. â€œThe documents also include newspaper clippings. The petitioner himself has buried the truth,â€ Justice Azmat remarked.
The court maintained that one side had submitted 700 pages while the other had submitted 1600 pages. “We are not a computer that we scan the documents in a minute,” Justice Azmat Saeed said.
During hearing of the Panama Leaks case, Chief Justice Anwar Zaheer Jamali said that every day they were receiving six to 10 petition. “If we begin hearing each petition the real case will be left aside.”
To this, advocate Tariq Asad said that he had filed the first petition in April.
The Chief Justice remarked that Asad had asked that the case be sent to National Accountability Bureau and Federal Investigative Agency.
Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s (PTI) lawyer Hamid Khan said that the Prime Minister’s name had appeared in the Panama Leaks and the apex court should analyse three of the speeches he made regarding the allegations.
In hisÂ remarks Chief Justice Anwar Zaheer Jamali said that solid evidence for Panama Leaks will have to be submitted in the court.
The chief justiceÂ said till a detailed investigation is done, the court cannot give out a verdict. “An inquiry commission can carry out an investigation,” the CJ added.
Justice Asif Saeed Khosa said, “You have pointed out the mistakes. Now give us documentary evidence.”
“We can not scrutiny the entire life of Nawaz Sharif,” he added.
The court adjourned the hearing till November 29.
