Panamagate case: Pakistan SC reserves verdict against PM Nawaz Sharif & family

Pakistan Supreme Court today reserved its verdict in Panamagate case filed against Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and his family over alleged corruption. The judgment was reserved after counsels of both sides concluded their arguments.

Panamagate case is being heard by a three-member bench of the Supreme Court.

The court had yesterday warned the Prime Minister’s children of upto seven years in jail, if it was proved that they had submitted fake documents to the Panama panel. The Joint Investigation Team, JIT probing the allegations observed in its report that some of the documents submitted by Sharif’s children were tampered with.

The case against Nawaz Sharif emerged last year after the Panama Papers leak linked his children to offshore companies in the British Virgin Islands in relation to the purchase of upmarket property in London.
