Panamagate case: Maryam Nawaz's counsel submits reply in SC

Panama case a ‘war against corruption’ Imran

Responding to Justice Asif Saeed Khosa's remarks if the constitutional immunity can be withdrawn, Makhdoom Ali Khan said it's the prerogative of the Parliament.

During the course of proceedings, Advocate Makhdoom Ali Khan continued his arguments, saying that his client gave gifts to his daughter through banks.

Addressing a news conference in Islamabad on Wednesday evening, Muhammad Zubair said PTI has failed to produce any documentary evidence before the Supreme Court to prove its allegations.

Marriyum Aurangzeb said Imran Khan told lies about dependence of Maryam Nawaz on the prime minister, but documents proving that she was not dependent on the prime minister were submitted in the court.

Makhdoom pointed out that the gifts to his daughter had been mentioned in the prime minister's wealth and income tax returns, which have been submitted in the court. "We do not want to hide anything from the court but everyone has a fundamental right to keep their bank records safe and secret", he claimed. He added that if the court asked for such documents, details of the accounts would be provided.

"Ghatia Darbari ki Ghatia Batein", it was said by Pakistan Tehreek-e- Insaf (PTI) Chief Imran Khan in response to statements given by Federal Minister for Railways Khawaja Saad Rafique against him.

Meanwhile on the issue of Maryam Nawaz's dependency on her father, Khan stated that her name was entered as dependent in tax forms because their was no other slot on the sheet.

The next hearing of the case was due to be held on Thursday.

The leaked papers, comprising 11.5 million documents from Panama-based law firm Mossack Fonseca, exposes how some of the world's most powerful people have secreted their money offshore, and also implicated Sharif's sons Hasan Nawaz and Hussain Nawaz.
