ISLAMABAD: Verbal clash between Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) and Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) persisted on third day (Friday) of Panamagate case hearing.
As the hearing resumed, PTI information secretary Naeemul Haq told media that all the information has been provided to the bench and no doubt remains in the case.
He expressed hope that the verdict will be declared till the next week.
“Sharif family say that their name is not listed anywhere. The reason is that they have hidden their name. This is the crime that they have committed. The verdict will be declared by the Supreme Court (SC) on this issue,” he said.
PTI spokesman Fawad Chaudhry said that it was revealed in June 2012 that Maryam Nawaz is the owner of Minerva and the properties were bought by the money of Prime Minister (PM) Nawaz Sharif.
“We have submitted evidence in the court against Maryam Nawaz’s statement that she is a beneficiary and not a owner. The evidence proves that she is providing a false statement,” he pronounced.
“All the financial transactions of Maryam Nawaz have been submitted in court which is basically related to PM Nawaz. Maryam borrowed money from his father and invested in Minerva whose front is Nielson and Nescol, the owners of the property,” said Fawad.
He further added that PTI has specifically pleaded for the removal of chairman National Accountability Bureau (NAB).
“We want that the Supreme Judicial Council should be sent a reference by the bench because chairman NAB has also played together with the government in Mossack Fonseca and money-laundering issue,” he said.
