ISLAMABAD: Supreme Court of Pakistan resumed the Panama Papers case hearing on January 20.
The Supreme Court observed on Friday that it was yet to be established whether the Sharifs owned their London properties before 2006.
Referring to Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif interviews, Justice Asif Saeed Khosa observed that Sharif family businesses and politics continued side by side till 1997. However, he maintained that the court could not proceed further till a conflict of interest had been established.
Justice Ijaz ul Ahsan asked Jamat-e-Islami counsel Taufiq Asif whether there was any code of conduct prohibiting the prime minister from partaking in business activities while remaining in office.
When the JI lawyer read the Prime Minister’s speech in the parliament, Justice Ijaz remarked that the PM would address it on the floor of house, adding that explanations on personal allegations against the premier could be demanded at the National Assembly
