ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court, while hearing the plea for opening the Hudaibya case on Tuesday, has sought evidence of the money trail and other allegations.
The NAB counsel told the court that the accused had withdrawn their money before the foreign currency accounts were frozen.
Justice Mashir Alam remarked that documents concerned should be before them in the wake of such situation.
Justice Faiz Isa remarked that these are only stories that money has been shifted from here to there and the prosecution has to tell about the charge.
NAB Deputy Prosecutor Imranul Haq said that the JIT had recommended opening the Hudaibya case and the money trail is linked to it. “The record shows that the Sharif family launched the money laundering in 1991,” he added.
The NAB counsel said that there is no mention of Hudaibya in the Panama verdict.
Justice Mashir Alam said that they had asked to read out the majority judgment. “How should we link the Panama judgment to the Hudaibya case ?” he questioned.
Justice Faiz Isa said that the JIT had given its opinion and what negligence is. “It is also possible that the matter might pertain to income tax,” he added.
The case has been adjourned until Wednesday.
