Panamagate: Refrain from criticising SC bench, Punjab CM urges PML-N leaders

ISLAMABAD:
Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif has urged party leaders to refrain from criticising the Supreme Court bench hearing the Panama Papers case, as well as other state institutions.

A senior Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader told The Express Tribune the CM, while addressing a meeting of the parliamentary party, also advised Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to strengthen his legal team and fight the case whole hog.

The Joint Investigation Team (JIT) constituted by the Supreme Court to probe Sharif family’s offshore assets concluded on July 10 that the PM and his family is in possession of assets beyond known sources of income. The team, which submitted its report to the apex court, recommended filing a reference against the Sharif family with the National Accountability Bureau.

Meanwhile, another senior PML-N leader said that “non-hawkish and polite approach is the need of the hour, with the premier also agreeing.”

It is learnt that Sharif family’s top counsel Khawaja Muhammad Haris has prepared a draft of objections on the JIT report, and it may be submitted [to the top court] on Saturday.

According to sources, Haris has been residing in the PM House as he is busy in drafting a response [to the report].

A final decision of filing objections, they added, will be taken after holding a meeting today.

PML-N leaders have termed the JIT report politically motivated and worthless, saying they will ‘destroy’ its contents during the next hearing of the case.
