A five-member larger bench resumed hearing the Panama Leaks case hearing on Friday.

A counsel for Jamat-e-Islami Taufeeq Asif began his arguments during the proceeding today. He said that the Prime Minister should be disqualified for hiding the London flats.

Justice Ejaz asked if there was a code of conduct which said that the Prime Minister could not engage in business.

“There is no such limitation,” the counsel said.

Justice Azmat Saeed remarked, “Why are you dragging the case on mere assumption? No evidence has been brought to us.”

Justice Asif Saeed Khosa said that the Prime Minister has asked for privilege of the parliament under Article 66 not immunity.

The hearing has been adjourned till January 23 (Monday).

Justice Asif Saeed Khosa remarked, “Are you trying to say he hid the London flats on purpose?
