On Wednesday, the children of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif submitted a petition in the Supreme Court against documents submitted by Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) in the Panama Leaks case.
The petition submitted by Maryam, Hasan and Hussain Nawaz states that the 683 pages submitted by the PTI were just pieces of paper and did not have any legal standing.
The petition was submitted by Advocate Akram Sheikh on behalf of the prime minister’s children.
In the last hearing, Justice Azmat Saeed said documents submitted by Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) had no relevance with the case. “The documents also include newspaper clippings. The petitioner himself has buried the truth,” Justice Azmat remarked.
The court maintained that one side had submitted 700 pages while the other had submitted 1600 pages. “We are not a computer that we scan the documents in a minute,” Justice Azmat Saeed said.
