Sharif family’s lawyer obtains verified record of Panama Leaks case from SC

ISLAMABAD: Lawyer of Sharif family, Khawaja Haris on Saturday has obtained verified data of Panama Leaks case from Supreme Court (SC) ahead of recording his clients’ statements in Avenfield reference.

According to sources, the record includes petitions against Sharif family, written replies of the parties, ex-Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s review petition and other documentations.

The record will be attached with the statements of Nawaz Sharif, his daughter Maryam Nawaz and son-in-law Captain (r) Safdar.

Accountability court had directed Sharif family members to record their statements on May 21 after their counsel Khawaja Harris raised objections over the questionnaire.

Khawaja Harris said that there is ambiguity in few questions due to which time is required.

On the other hand, the lawyer will continue cross-examination of Panama Joint Investigation Team (JIT) head Wajid Zia in Al-Azizia Steel Mills reference on Tuesday.

Previously, Wajid Zia told the court that Hill Metal Establishment earned 9.9 million dollar profit during 2010 to 2017 while Nawaz Sharif received 8.9 million dollar from the company during 2010 to 2015.

SC disqualified Sharif from office in July over unreported sources of annual income of about $10,000, a salary the former premier denies ever receiving. The high court also ordered the NAB to investigate and conduct a trial into the Sharif family’s wider finances, including the London properties.

Sharif was also ousted from the presidency of the ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) party, which elected close ally Shahid Khaqan Abbasi as prime minister after Sharif was disqualified.
