Pak SC questions money trail of PM Sharif’s London flats
Pakistan’s Supreme Court on Wednesday questioned the money trail of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s flats in London with one of the judges observing that there was no bank record of money being transferred from Pakistan to a foreign country.
Hearing a case pertaining to the alleged offshore wealth of Sharif’s family in London, the apex court said the family had not presented documents for companies it had mentioned. In fact, documents had been hidden from the court, it said.
“Why were the documents hidden?” the court asked Akram Sheikh, the lawyer for Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s children. “If you say that you are a shareholder, you will have to give evidence,” Justice Azmat Saeed as saying.
Earlier, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chairman Imran Khan’s counsel Naeem Bukhari submitted a summary of a transaction, questioning the Sharif family’s investment of 12 million dirhams in Qatar in 1980, despite owing 14 million dirhams to the Bank of Commerce and Credit International.
