PTI files petition in LHC against CM Shahbaz Sharif over Panama JIT report


LAHORE: The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf on Saturday filed a reference case in the Lahore High Court seeking the disqualification of Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif .

Babar Awan, who recently joined the PTI , filed the reference on behalf of Imran Khan as earlier vowed to take the chief minister to court. 

Shahbaz Sharif has also filed a defamation case over Imran’s claim that he was offered ten billion rupees to stay silent on the Panama case.

Addressing the media, Babar Awan said that the reference is not based on any rumours or assumptions, but rather the Joint Investigation Team report in which Shahbaz Sharif’s name is mentioned twice.

“There is declaration in Panama case against Godfather 2,” he said referring to the JIT report which claims Shahbaz Sharif  in the Al-Towfeek case submitted large sums without any money trail or known sources over the Mayfair apartments.
