Supreme Court adjourns Panama case until tomorrow
July 19, 2017

ISLAMABAD (92 News) – The special three-member bench adjourned the Panama case until Wednesday.

Hearing the case, Justice Ijazul Hassan remarked that the prime minister had stated that he would give the money trail and proofs. “When were the flats purchased? Who provided the money? What was the money trail?” he said.

Justice Ijaz Afzal said that it has to be seen whether a case could be formed against the prime minister or not. “We will have to decide whether we or the trial court will decide the case,” he remarked.

PM's counsel Khawaja Haris, concluding his arguments, said that the JIT had shown the London flats as ownership of the entire family. “The flats are not directly related to the prime minister,” he contended.

Justice Ijaz Afzal remarked: “Khawaja Haris Sahib! You should have shown all your cards.”

The counsel for Ishaq Dar will present his arguments tomorrow.
