ISLAMABAD: Supreme Court resumed the Panama Papers case hearing on January 25.
The Supreme Court on Wednesday asked Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and his family to submit documents regarding the distribution of properties after the demise of Mian Muhammad Sharif in 2004.
A five-judge bench headed by Justice Asif Saeed Khosa asked the premier’s counsel to submit documents regarding the settlement of Sharif properties.
During the hearing, Maryam Nawaz’s counsel Shahid Hamid stated that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf submitted forged documents to establish that the premier’s daughter is the beneficial owner of London flats. The signatures do not match, he upheld.
Justice Ijazul Ahsan, however, observed that forgery is a question of fact.
He said there are two aspects to the issue, one being Maryam’s dependency on her father and second that she acted as the “front man” for PM Nawaz and all properties belong to him.
