ISLAMABAD: Supreme Court of Pakistan resumed the Panama Papers case hearing on Friday January 13.

PM Nawaz Sharif Lawyer Makhdoom Ali Khan continued with his arguments before the 5 member bench.

Nawaz Sharif’s counsel on Friday contended that the Supreme Court cannot directly disqualify the premier in the ongoing Panamagate case .

During his arguments, Makhdoom Ali Khan stated that the top court in its 2014 judgement declared both terms, ‘Sadiq’ and ‘Ameen’ as nightmare and feast of security, adding that both terms are “harvest for lawyers”.

He further contended that in order for the court to disqualify any lawmaker, there first needs to be a declaration, on the basis of which the individual can then be disqualified. “Disqualification in this situation cannot happen,” the counsel told the court.
