Panama Papers in SC: Sharif Family lawyer seeks 8 weeks time on new evidences
ISLAMABAD: Supreme Court of Pakistan 5 member bench resumed the hearing of the Panama Papers case on Tuesday after a gap of few days.
Supreme Court of Pakistan Tuesday resumed hearing of Panamagate scandal case as Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and his children filed a new petition against the additional documents filed by Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI).
The PM’s petition pleaded with the court not to allow the PTI’s additional documents to become a part to the record, and requested the court to grant 8-week’s time in case it intends to take them up.
The petition states, “The documents were submitted after our lawyers completed their arguments.
Hence, they will have no time to submit their response to these documents.”
Heading a five-judge bench, Justice Asif Saeed Khosa said it is a decided fact that it is not wrong to found an offshore company, adding, “But, we want to know the role of Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) regarding offshore companies.”
