ISLAMABAD: Supreme Court of Pakistan continued to seek evidences from Sharif family and other parties to prove their respective standpoints as the Panamagate scandal case seems to have arrived back to square one.

A five-judge bench said Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif did not produce record of his Jeddah factory and fake accounts were opened for the sake of money-laundering.

The judges said the proofs regarding Sharif family’s ownership of the offshore companies since 1993 have not been submitted to the court so far.

Justice Sheikh Azmat Saeed said the Sharif family will have to clarify its stance on the documents as people of Pakistan want to know the truth.

The PTI’s counsel Naeem Bukhari completed his arguments. The court adjourned the hearing till tomorrow. –SAMAA
