SC decides to hear Panamagate case on daily basis

Islamabad (Staff Report): A larger bench of the Supreme Court has decided today (Wednesday) to conduct hearing of Panama Papers case on daily basis.

Earlier today, SC resumed hearing of Panama Leaks case. The new CJ Mian Saqib Nisar constituted a new five-member larger bench headed by Justice Asif Saeed Khan Khosa, to hear the case. The head of the larger bench would be Justice Asif Saeed Khosa and other members would be Justice Ejaz Afzal Khan, Justice Gulzar Ahmed, Justice Sheikh Azmat Saeed and Justice Ejazul Hasan.

The Prime Minister and his children have changed their lawyers in the Panama Leaks case. Prime Minister will now be represented by Makhdoom Ali Khan, for the moment, Maryam Nawaz and Captain Safdar will be represented by Shahid Hamid and Salman Akram Raja will represent Hussain Nawaz.

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf leader Shah Mahmood Qureshi claimed that the change of lawyers from the premier and his family a day before the hearing is a tactic for delaying the case, as the new lawyers would possibly request for time extension from the judges to prepare for the case.

Earlier, PTI chairman Imran Khan said that his party had dug out several evidences which revealed that Maryam Nawaz was the actual owner of the Mayfair Flats.
