ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s legal team on Thursday submitted written reply to court’s questions that were asked in Wednesday’s hearing.
According to details, information about Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s public offices and businesses has also been submitted in the court.
Lawyer told the court that Nawaz Sharif had served as finance minister of Punjab from April 25, 1981 to February 28, 1985.
He was CM Punjab from April 9, 1985 to May 30, 1988 whereas he took charge as prime minister on November 6, 1990 but resigned in 1993.
Earlier, a five-member larger bench of the Supreme Court had decided to hold Panama Leaks hearing on daily basis and asked key questions from Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s lawyer.
The apex court asked the defense lawyer to tell exact dates regarding Nawaz Sharif’s appointment as the minister of finance, his selection as Punjab chief minister, appointment as the prime minister and date of his exile.
The bench hinted at tracing any misuse of public office by Nawaz Sharif.
Justice Asif Saeed Khosa stated that the prime minister had claimed in his speech that in 1972 the then government had nationalised the Ittefaq Foundry without giving (his family) a single penny, but where did he get money from to invest in Dubai steel mill.
Justice Khosa observed that an attested letter from Qatari prince, presented in the apex court in November, states that the London flats were owned by the Al Thani family before the Sharif family bought them, however, no record had been presented in the court to show that the Al Thani family used to own the flats.
