ISLAMABAD: A three-judge Supreme Court bench seized with the Panamagate implementation case adjourned the hearing on the Joint Investigation Team (JIT) report till Tuesday (tomorrow).
Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s lawyer Khawaja Haris was on his feet putting forward his arguments when the judges rose for the day. The counsel for other parties concluded their arguments over the JIT findings and unanimously pleaded with the judges to disqualify the prime minister.
The bench of the apex court comprised of Justice Ejaz Afzal Khan, Justice Sheikh Azmat Saeed and Justice Ijazul Hassan resumed the hearing today on the JIT report submitted on the offshore wealth of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s family.
The Sharifs’ legal team has filed the objections in the court, rejecting the report in its entirety. It termed the findings biased, politically motivated and an attempt to tarnish the image of the prime minister and his family while pleading to judges to nullify the report. Finance Minister Ishaq Dar also filed his objections to the report.
