ISLAMABAD: The political temperature is expected to rise further as Supreme Court is resuming on Monday its hearing into Panama Papers case in the light of Joint Investigation Team’s report on Sharif family’s financial assets, Samaa reported.
All parties in the case, including the members of Sharif family, are expected to attend final round of hearing.
A three-member SC bench led by Justice Ejaz Afzal will hear the petitions seeking disqualification of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif over charges of money laundering and corruption.
On the other hand, the ruling party is expected to file a petition in the apex court challenging the JIT report.
The JIT submitted its final investigation report in the court on July 10, recommending filing of a corruption case against the PM and his children. – Samaa
