ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court on Friday resumed hearing into Panama Papers case, as counsel of Jamaat-e-Islami submitted his arguments before a five-member bench.
A five-member bench, headed by Justice Asif Saeed Khosa is hearing the case on daily basis. Other bench members are Justice Ejaz Afzal, Justice Gulzar Ahmed, Justice Sheikh Azmat Saeed and Justice Ijaz ul Ahsan.
In today’s hearing, Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) counsel Taufiq Asif started his arguments.
During the hearing, Justice Asif Saeed Khosa said that the question arises whether the flats were purchased or got in settlements.
Earlier, Justice Khosa had remarked that offshore companies are not the actual issue but making them to avoid tax is wrong.
Justice Ejaz Afzal Khanhad said that those calling Maryam Nawaz as PM’s dependent should also provide evidence.
The JI has filed a petition in the court seeking Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s personal appearance in the apex court to clarify the controversy over his family’s alleged offshore assets.
