Islamabad (Staff Report): Ousted prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s children — Hussain, Hassan and Maryam — and his son-in-law Captain (retd) Mohammad Safdar have filed review petitions in the Supreme Court, challenging the apex court’s verdict of July 28 in the Panama Papers case.

Petitioners’ counsel Salman Akram Raja besides questioning the probe carried out by a six-member joint investigation team, also raised objections on the appointment of a top court judge to supervise the anti-graft watchdog’s proceedings in the case.

The petitioners also requested the court to set aside its directive to the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) to file corruption references against them until the review petitions are heard and decided, the petitions state.

Hussain, Hassan, Maryam and Captain Safdar have each filed two petitions — one challenging the judgement of the five-member SC bench, and the other against the verdict reserved by the three-member Panama Papers implementation bench.
