The Pakistani Supreme Court today said that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s children may face prosecution for submitting forged documents to the joint investigation team (JIT) probing Panamagate case, The Express Tribune reported.
Referring to the Dubai government’s disclosure that the documents of Gulf Steel Mills provided by the Sharif family were forged, Justice Ijazul Ahsen asked Salman Akram Raja, the counsel for PM’s children, as to why the Sharif family was not explaining how they paid Rs 21 million liability after the selling of Al Azizia Mills in Saudi Arabia and how Rs 63 million was transferred to Hussain Nawaz’s account.
“Dubai Customs has no record of transportation of machinery of Gulf Steel Mills from Dubai to Saudi Arabia,” Justice Ijazul Ahsen was quoted as saying by The Express Tribune.
Justice Ijazul Ahsen further pointed out that the Government of Dubai has revealed that the documents of Gulf Steel Mills provided by the Sharif family were forged.
Justice Azmat Saeed Sheikh, another judge of the three-judge bench, pointed out that Nawaz Sharif’s daughter Maryam Nawaz has been confirmed as the owner of London flats.
“It is not allegation but a matter of fact that Maryam is the beneficial owner of the flats,” he said.
