ISLAMABAD: Supreme Court 5 member esteemed Bench continued with the Panama Papers case on Tuesday.
Justice Asif Saeed Khosa – head of the Supreme Court’s five-judge larger bench – observed that the real issue before the court is whether the prime minister is truthful or not in his statements related to his family’s London properties.
“The real issue before us is honesty. Was he (PM) honest to the nation, the National Assembly and the court?” asked Justice Khosa in his remarks when PTI’s counsel Naeem Bukhari referred to contradictions in the PM’s speeches in National Assembly on the money trail of the London flats.
“There are some contradictions in the explanations, given by the PM and his children,” Justice Khosa observed.
