ISLAMABAD: The counsel of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has submitted reply in the Supreme Court, hearing Panama Papers case here Thursday.

In the reply submitted in the apex court on behalf of the Premier, it is stated that the name of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif was not mentioned in the Panama Papers. The Premier does not own offshore companies and flats abroad, it added.

The court declared all identical petitions filed in Panama Papers case maintainable and also ordered all other petitioners and the prime minister's counsel to submit their ToRs by Monday.

The court adjourned the hearing till Monday morning and directed Hasan Nawaz, Maryam Nawaz and Hussain Nawaz to submit their replies by Monday.

Meanwhile, speaking to media outside the apex court, PTI Chairman Imran Khan questioned Attorney General of Pakistan being representing PM Nawaz in Panama Papers. “The AG is not a personal servant to the Sharif family and he cannot represent them in this case.”

He said PM Nawaz has lost moral grounds to run the government, adding that in democratic set up, government is run on these moral grounds.
