Sharif family can be summoned if they contradict their stance on London flats: SC

Zainab murder case: Committee terms Shahid Masood's allegations baseless

ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court on Thursday declared members of Sharif family can be summoned if they contradict their stance regarding London flats.
“If Sharif family contradicts previous interviews regarding London flats, the top court can summon them,” Justice Asif Saeed Khosa said. Justice Khosa is heading a five-judge bench of the apex court hearing afresh a slew of petitions seeking Premier Sharif’s disqualification in the backdrop of the Panama Papers revelations.
The statement came after PTI lawyer Naeem Bukhari referred to interviews of PM Nawaz and his children to establish their contradictory stance on London properties. However, Justice Khosa observed that if anyone denies their media statements then they’ll have to record statements.
While, another judge on the bench, Justice Azmat Saeed Sheikh, warned the PTI lawyer, “If you start hanging people on the basis of news clippings then your client will not survive either.”
Justice Khosa pointed out that the premier never stated that London properties are owned by his son, Hussain Nawaz. Likewise, during interviews Hussain referred to the luxury apartments in London as “our flats” and not “my flats”.
