Panama Case verdict: Supreme Court disqualifies Nawaz Sharif

A five-judge Supreme Court bench has declared Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif ineligible to rule in the much-awaited verdict in the Panamagate case.

According to ARY Islamabad Bureau Chief Sabir Chief, the apex court has disqualified Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif in its historic judgement.

The court also ordered  that all cases of the Sharif family including PM Nawaz Sharif be referred to the National Accountability Bureau (NAB).

The bench headed by Justice Asif Saeed Khosa, announced the judgement. Justice Khosa is the same judge who had given a dissenting note in the April 20 judgment with a quote from Mario Puzo’s novel The Godfather and declared Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif ‘disqualified’ for not being honest to the nation.

The judge also had direc­ted the Election Commission of Pakistan to issue a notification of the PM’s disqualification, an opinion that was endorsed by another Justice Gulzar Ahmed.

But three other judges of the bench – Justice Ejaz Afzal Khan, Justice Sheikh Azmat Saeed and Justice Ijazul Ahsan – preferred giving prime minister and his children another opportunity to explain their position before forming the Joint Investigation Team.

Sharifs last-ditch defence

On July 21, the three-judge bench wrapped up the hearing on the findings of the JIT in Panamagate scandal. The counsel for the Prime Minister stressed throughout the hearing that the PM cannot be sent packing in the wake of the report which so far has failed to provide corroborative evidence to prove any wrongdoing committed by the PM.

The bench headed by Justice Ejaz Afzal Khan, and comprising Justice Sheikh Azmat Saeed and Justice Ijazul Ahsan, however, noted that the burden of proof lies with the properties’ owner to prove the money trail. “If the money trail is not established, the public office holder (PM) will have to bear the brunt of repercussions.”

Though, the lawyers, representing the PM and his children, pointed out ‘various loopholes’ in the report, but failed to give definitively answers to the judges’ queries about where did the money come from to buy pricy flats in an upscale London neighbourhod.

The judges also hinted at treading into the domain of disqualification of the prime minister and referring the matter to the NAB for initiation of corruption references against him.
