The decision of Panama Leaks Case is just round the corner
Supreme Court of Pakistan has reserved the decision of highly anticipated Panama Leaks case. Justice Khosa stated that we have to take some more time to cover all the angles before making a decision.
This Panama Leaks Case is very vital for defining the future of politics in Pakistan. The Supreme Court of Pakistan conducted 26 hearings for this particular case. The Pakistan Tehreek Insaf Chief Imran Khan, Awami Muslim League Chief Sheikh Rasheed Ahmad and Jamat-e-Islami Ameer Siraj ul Haq filed the petitions regarding this case. From the PTI Chief, Naeem Bukhari handled this case whereas Makhdoom Ali Khan represented Nawaz Sharif. For making this case more clear, Supreme Court had also summoned the chiefs of National Accountability Bureau and Federal Board of Revenue before taking the decision. On Thursday, in the last proceeding of this historic case, the five members’ bench headed by Justice Asif Khosa resumed the proceedings, and Naeem Bukhari continued his arguments with some harsh words on the character of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and his family regarding the transfer of money from Pakistan to other foreign countries. At that moment, the courtroom was full of the senior lawyers, politicians and other notable persons.
This infamous case is chaired by the Chief Justice of Pakistan Asif Saeed Khosa whereas the other four judges are Justice Azmat Saeed, Justice Ijaz Afzal, Justice Gulzar Ahmed and Justice Ijaz-ul-Hasan. All the main revelries showed great faith and confidence in this competent bench of most experienced judges and hoped that they would give the decision according to the law.
It was a big step from the SC to hear this case on a daily basis, and after that, we have seen some new springs in the efforts of both the main parties. After the hearings, during the talks to Media, Both the correspondents of their respective parties bashed each other and sometimes, the usage of words become quite severe during the press conferences. From Nawaz Sharif’s side, Mariam Aurangzeb, Saad Rafiq, Talal Chaudhary and Danial Aziz was always on the front line to tackle the questions from the journalists. Whereas on the other side of the coin the PTI the chief Imran Khan himself along with Asad Umar, Naeem-ul-Haq, Jahangir Tareen, Shah Mahmood Qureshi and other leaders were the leading people to force their issue actually in front of national and international media.
To be honest, this Panama case is a real deal for the distinguished judges of Supreme Court. It is also very much on the cards that the nation may get a very unusual decision in this historic case. Both PTI and PML(N) are confident about their victory. On the other hand, the other main political parties like PPP, MQM, and ANP are also keeping a close eye on this matter, and their remarks about this case are also mattered a lot in this crucial scenario.
Without any single doubt, sooner or later when the decision will arrive it will impact hugely on the landscape of politics of Pakistan, and as far as Pakistanis are concerned, they dearly want to get the things clearer so that they will see the difference between good and bad.
