In a tweet posted late afternoon, the minister for defence and power questioned the party’s ethics, stating that “a certain party resigned from the assembly, then begged to withdraw its resignations, and is now demanding the Prime Minister’s resignation.”

A few hours earlier, Federal Minister for Ports and Shipping Mir Hasil Bizenjo said a crisis-like situation exists in the country because of the Panama case.
“The joint investigation team [of the Panama case] was dishonest in the way it conducted the proceedings,” he said while talking to the media. “The Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz should challenge such a JIT that is based on dishonesty.”
The Panama Papers saga enters what may likely be its final round on Monday as the Supreme Court will hear responses of all the parties over the joint investigation team (JIT)’s report.
All eyes are fixed on the Supreme Court as the future course of the over-year long episode is likely to be determined by the honourable judges on Monday.
