Source: Geo • 7 months ago

ISLAMABAD: A larger bench of the Supreme Court led by Justice Asif Saeed Khosa resumed hearing the Panama Leaks case on Thursday.

In his arguments, the Prime Minister’s lawyer Makhdoom Ali Khan said that Nawaz Sharif was not director or shareholder of an offshore company, nor was he its beneficial owner.

Speaking to media outside the Supreme Court during break, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf leader Fawad Chaudhry said, that during the hearing the Prime Minister's lawyer brought forward three main arguments. "First that the court cannot give a verdict on his speech in the parliament. He argued that the PM is not answerable about either his father or his son's finances. However, he failed to give any evidence about the Dubai factory the Prime Minister has."

PTI spokesperson Naeem-ul-Haque said that the letter from the Qatar Prince is fake.

In the last hearing Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf completed its evidence.
